Welcome to the real world

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.

  1. She & her feet will adjust in time :-) I rember going through the same thing. I never thought I'd make it!
