When you were growing up and playing nurse, your patients were inanimate, fuzzy teddy bears and compliant, sweetly dressed dollies. Your play patients held still while you gave them pretend injections and bandaged their imaginary boo boos. This is nothing like the work that nurses do in real life. Dealing with people who are injured, sick, or out of their minds on drugs requires a kind of compassion mixed with sheer will power that we usually see on the pages of Marvel Comics. You nurses may not be wearing capes, but when we’re scared in the hospital or even worried in the doctor’s office, you are our super heroes. So whether you are a nurse or you’re just seeing one for that weird rash, everyone should appreciate these memes and the sheer variety of crap we should thank nurses for putting up with on a daily basis.

I'm a married, stay at home mother of 4, with a lot of crazy going on. Being a parent is so rewarding, but very exhausting! Ha! My husband is a musician/entrepreneur with a lot going on, so I manage most of the day to day and happen to find a lot of humor in all the chaos. If the choice is laugh or cry, I'll choose laugh every time. :)
