So my soon to be 18 year old finally started her first job Tuesday. And it is really strange not having her here during the evenings. She was a hermit prior to this.
So first day of work she comes home just tired. No problem. Day two and day three was a completely different story. She was dragging her butt and complaining her feet hurt. They were hurting so bad that she couldn't even stand to take a shower until the next morning.
I suggest to her to wear the cushioned tennis shoes that she has but Nooooo that wouldn't make any difference to the no-cushion Chuck Taylor Converses she wears. Mom knows nothing about being on her feet after being a waitress for 4+years, many moons ago.
So she will learn the hard way, and I hope to hear the "You were right" phrase from her more sooner than later.
