So a friend that I have never met in real life is a finalist in a really neat contest for the 2012 Farm Mom of the Year. While hubs and I have no kids and no plans in the foreseeable future to go down that road, I have an idea how difficult running a ranch and running a good sized family can be. But what really sold me on voting for Debbie is that she stays home each day and runs the farm while her husband works in town. Now that doesn’t mean that he works less than her but it does mean that she is unique. Most farms around here have either both spouses on the farm or the wife works in town.
While I hate doing it, I often have to call Hubs at work during the day when something breaks and I admit to calling him to ask what gear I should have the tractor in for whatever field work I am attempting to get done and we aren’t even farming full time. So my hat is off to you Debbie! Her kid’s hijacked her blog and posted a bunch of great reasons to vote for her, so check it out and take a moment to put your vote in for an exceptional farm mom.
