Drill Sergeant Duties!

While doing some research at work the other day I ran across this description of a Drill Sergeant As I sat reading it, I was stunned that it mirrored my life and probably the lives of almost every mother in the world. P.S. You can add your own examples!

" A Drill Sergeant is a symbol of excellence in initial entry training: Meaning as your mother I've been through all of this so you should  really listen to my advice!
Is an expert in all warrior tasks: Tie the top of the garbage bag when you take it out so you don't spill it. 
Battle drills: This is what you do, when confronted by _______________(fill in the blank)
 Lives the Army values: Just because Tommy's mother lets him do that, doesn't mean I'm going to let you do that.
Exemplifies the Warrior Ethos: I will always place the mission first, I will always do whats best for our family.
I will never accept defeat: You can pass this class, I will give/get you the help you need.
I will never quit: I will never give up on YOU.
I will never leave a fallen comrade: I will never leave you.
and most importantly is the epitome of the Army as a profession." This is the most important job I will ever have in my life so I will do my best to get it right.

 As a drill sergeant you are responsible for coaching, counseling and mentoring  troops as you transform them from civilians to combat ready soldiers. As a mother you are responsible for coaching, counseling and mentoring your children as you transform them into responsible adults. What you do will impact them for the rest of their lives.
