"Because I Have to Work"

Junior is on my case about me staying home with him all summer. Which sounds great to both of us, but, well, unless the bank fairy wants to bling me with $10,000 (give or take) to cover the time between now and when he goes back to school, I’m afraid I’ll be going to work every morning.

Trust me, there is nothing I want more than to be able to stay home with him this summer. I am aware that the older he gets, the less likely it will seem like a fun option to him. But I can’t talk about that because it’s too depressing.

So instead, I tell him if I don’t go to work, we won’t be able to put money in our Disneyworld fund, which has more of an impact on a six year old than “we won’t be able to pay the mortgage,” if you can believe it.

So if any of you were thinking of sending me a lot of money, now would be the time to do it. I just wanted to put that out there.
