First Job

Okay, this post is way overdue, but I finally stole a few moments (thanks to a baby who was up way too early this morning) to upload pics and get the post out. My girls landed their first job in October. Their first real taste of responsibility! Our next door neighbors have a schnauzer and asked my girls to take care of her while they're out of town. Translation: feed & water twice daily, play with, and take on walks. They've done amazing, really. Honestly, the only issue we've had is getting up early to feed her after staying up too late partying with friends and family. Okay, poop scooping the first day was a challenge for Shanan, no big surprise there. However, I got out the "medical grade" vinyl goves, and then she was fine. :) There have been two occasions that I've had to feed her for them, due to inability to awaken & a playdate, and they're doing extra chores to compensate, because, as you can see, they were paid well! (See those big smiles as they hold their money in their hands!) They've taken the responsibility seriously, and I'm really proud of them! Way to go, Shanan & Alyssa!! In fact, they did so well that they got an opportunity to take care of Molly again, and make a few more bucks!

That's great ... my kids had a job like that too and they were so thrilled to make some money.
