Had to let my son go…

told him this morning. He was not happy with me. It happens you know. People are losing their jobs right and left. He eats more than he works. It’s a deficit everyday. It’s just good business you know. It just wasn’t working out.  But then…he redeemed himself for now!

He agreed to go around and change the light bulbs that had gone and burned out in the house. Those little replacement light bulbs for our weird fixtures are hard to remember to purchase. Much less get them installed. So, around he goes replacing bulbs and taking names. Ladders, light bulbs in kroger bags, oh my! He was able to get them all replaced and we agreed that for now he could stay.

Let that be a lesson to you kids!  Children  should always be looking for ways to make us want to keep you on. I think he learned a valuable lesson here. Don’t be in a deficit with your boss. It never works out well for you. Figure out a way to always be in the black with your boss/mom/dad. It never hurts to remember that it is only in your child’s best interest to be a worker in your home. That’s what the real word is all about. So, parents work it to your advantage!

    I hear you. I let my son go too…He was becoming a young man. You have to do it…but he died two months later, so when you let go, every time you let go, say I love you…even if he rolls his eyes. It’s a mother’s prerogative. Children are more precious than we know.

    • That is so true. I’m so sorry you went through that. I think after all the loss I have had if I lost a child I would not recover from it. My dad, brother and best friend all died within the last 5 years.
