This is the text exchange between Dan and I while Max was in his very first ever job interview.
A month ago Max approached us and said that now that he's sixteen he wanted to start earning money.
Me: You want to get a job?
Me (with a look of shock and horror): Why?? You have the rest of your life to work and working sucks.
Dan: I'll tell you why, because his gas tank ain't gonna fill itself, is why.
Coincidentally Max received his completion of his Driver's Ed Certificate in the mail today and now all he has to do is pass the actual driving test with the same flying colors that he passed his drug test. Then we will have a kid that drives and is employed.
Guess who's never picking up random groceries again?
No more bullshit errands for this girl! I'm hoping the "new driver" high will last until Tommy is sixteen.
I totally get it.
Now if everyone could do me a favor and join hands and bow your heads:
Dear Heavenly Father, please keep my son safe and clear the road of idiot drivers. Amen.
This is a real game changer for the Hamlins.
