Jobs

M: Mom, you should get a job at a shoe store.

Me: Uhh, okay. Why?

M: So that you can make money. Because when you do a job really, really good, people will pay you a lot of money. And you can buy things.

Me: Well, we have enough money.

M: But you need enough to buy things like make-up.

I walked away from a law degree and a career as a trial attorney to stay home with this child. And she wants me to work at Steve Madden? For make-up.

  1. I'm sure it wasn't normal makeup. No need to work for that. I'm sure it was extra special sparkly makeup. : )

  2. You know, I'm inclined to be okay with her wanting to buy make-up. this is a post-third-wave-feminism world, right? Let her embrace whatever she so desires!

    Where I got tripped up was this: "Because when you do a job really, really good, people will pay you a lot of money"

    Ahhhh, I wish it were so. I wish it were so.
