My daughter's first job

No she doesn't have it yet, but she is looking for one.

She wants her own money and a regular pay check.

I told her if she didn't have summer school she could have a summer job. After all she'll be seventeen this year and getting a job is a big step toward independence.

Okay, maybe I should have been more specific. She got out of having summer school by doing so badly in one class that she is going to repeat it for next school year.

But a promise is a promise, and she already has put in a couple of job applications over the weekend, and she got her work permit application filled out and I've signed it. She just needs her boss (who ever that is) to sign it and then she is all set.

The only other thing I told her was that her job had to be between here and her school, that is walking or bike riding distance from home and school.

I also gave her an option of keeping her job if it didn't interfere with school work, because at this point in her life finishing high school is much more important than a job.

Tomorrow we will be looking at bicycles so she can get to the new job when she gets one.

That first job, even if it is a casual/part time on, is certainly a big step!

Hi Mum,

Yes it certainly is, and a first step toward being a responsible adult as well.

They do grow up in a hurry.

Please wish her the best of luck from me.

Oh, love the potted kitty.

Hi Ann,

Yeah they do *sigh* I just wish she could have stayed little for just a couple more years.

I'm glad you liked the picture, I know you like cats.*grin*
