Death stares, vomiting lunch boxes and some serious five-year-old attitude – this parenthood caper ain’t a picnic.
On horrific days I dream of blowing this popcorn stand for greener pastures, so I thought it wise to practice my interviewing skills.
FIVE QUESTIONS I’LL TOTALLY BE ABLE TO NAIL DURING A JOB INTERVIEW NOW THAT I’VE HAD THREE KIDS:
1. How have you grown or changed over the past few years?
I successfully managed to gain 25kgs in nine months, and I didn’t just do it once, I did it THREE TIMES!!
My boobs grew to the size of a three-year-old’s head and my feet grew one shoe size – if that isn’t commitment to growing then I don’t know what is.
2. What are your strengths?
I am fluent in changing a swear word mid-sentence, muttering under my breath, sarcasm, white lies and telling off three children in one breath.
My ability to ignore annoying requests is also quite remarkable – especially those that involve craft, cooking and cleaning.
3. Are you a nice person?
Sure I am, especially to those who could potentially spit in my food if I moan about their crappy customer service skills.
I will also befriend and
bribe buy treats for teachers and childcare workers, it can’t hurt to be a bit of a suck up!
4. What have been your achievements to date?
Oh that’s an easy one – I have totally nurtured and loved three bottles of plonk in one night, and lived to tell the tale!
5. Why should we hire you?
Because I said so.
And because if I can survive having 3 kids in 3.5 years, including two boys who give Dennis the Menace a run for his money, then I deserve a
psychologist for the rest of my life a shot!
Also, if you don’t I’ll probably get VERY ANGRY – and to quote David Banner: “You won’t like me when I’m angry”.
How would you answer one of these questions? What has parenthood made you good at? Would you hire me?
