This is the Life of a Nurse
We can’t hug our children until we take off our scrubs and take a bath.
After work, we’re too tired to cook. We’re too tired to clean. We’re too tired to kiss.
We have the most inappropriate dinner conversations.
Our scrubs do not feel like pajamas.
We go to work before the sun comes up and we leave work after the sun has gone down.
There’s a 50% chance this stain on our scrubs is blood, and a 50% chance it’s chocolate.
If we clock in even one minute late, we’re docked 15 minutes (right?!??….?)
We may all go to hell for this one.
We can find alcohol pads anywhere.
We use our badge at the cafeteria like it’s a Black American Express card.
We will treat our family members with Motrin and Tylenol. They have to be bleeding or dying to go to the doctor.
This is how we take our kids temperature.
Sometimes we like our pajamas and our bed better than our husbands (Sorry honey)
Our favorite day off is in the middle of the week, when our kids are at school.
We use extra OR laps to clean our kitchen.
Neighbors call to ask about anything kind-of related to any maybe-medical problems, needing advice.
We dish out this advice like a doctor.
Until my next delivery ❤
