On Being a Parent

Job Description:
This is hysterical. If it had been presented this way,
I don't believe any of us would have done it!!!!

Mom, Mommy, Mama, Ma
Dad, Daddy, Dada, Pa, Pop

Long term, team players needed, for challenging,
permanent work in an
often chaotic environment.
Candidates must possess excellent communication
and organizational skills and be willing to work
variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends
and frequent 24 hour shifts on call.
Some overnight travel required, including trips to
primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports tournaments in far away cities!
Travel expenses not reimbursed.
Extensive courier duties also required.


The rest of your life.
Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily,
until someone needs $5.
Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly.
Also, must possess the physical stamina of a
pack mule
and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat
in case, this time, the screams from
the backyard are not someone just crying wolf.
Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges,
such as small gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets
and stuck zippers.
Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and
coordinate production of multiple homework projects.
Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings
for clients of all ages and mental outlooks.
Must be a willing to be indispensable one minute,
an embarrassment the next.
Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a
half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices.
Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.
Must assume final, complete accountability for
the quality of the end product.
Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and
janitorial work throughout the facility.


Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills,
so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you


None required unfortunately.
On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis.


Get this! You pay them!
Offering frequent raises and bonuses.
A balloon payment is due when they turn 18 because
of the assumption that college will help them
become financially independent.
When you die, you give them whatever is left.
The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that
you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more.


While no health or dental insurance, no pension,
no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and
no stock options are offered;
this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth, unconditional love,
and free hugs and kisses for life if you play your cards right.

Forward this on to all the PARENTS you know, in appreciation for everything they do on a daily basis,
letting them know they are appreciated
for the fabulous job they do...
or forward with love
to anyone thinking of applying for the job.

The organizers of FLOW SurfYogaSamba weekend retreat brought The FLOW package to Metro Manila last July 30, Saturday at Quantum Café. “We wanted those people who couldn’t come all the way to La Union because they can’t get away from work or their children, to be able to experience what FLOW was all about”, the FLOW team says.

The program started with a Yoga Fusion class which was collaborated by Monica Eleazar-Manzano of FLOW, Aisa Locsin of Yoga+ and Tricia Gotamco of MAMO Yoga & Travel.

Then Monica introduced some partner yoga poses for the eager yogis to practice with their friends. After the yoga class, Bali trained Raw Food chef, Asha Peri talked about Raw Vegan Food and presented some delicious samples during the Vegetarian Buffet dinner catered by Quantum Café.

yes, vegan barbecue!!

All throughout the program, prizes were being given out to the guests who were so happy to participate in the fun games. People who wanted to know more about what happens during a FLOW SurfYogaSamba weekend were able to view videos from past weekends.

To cap of the fun-filled night was a rockin’ performance by Escola de Samba de Manila led by Toni Bernardo. Denise Gonzales taught some samba moves and danced the night away.

All participants were able to bring home an assortment of awesome goods from FLOW’s fabulous friends- Yoga+ at the Fort, Beyond Yoga, Made for Movement Yoga & Travel, B&B Pilates, Manila Moves, Headware, Rudy Project, STRIP, Browhaus, FCUkay, Two Ocean, Hardy’s, Vodka Ice, Vodka Cruiser & Monkey Bar.
