Samantha had her first "job" today. She went to my friend's house to be a mother's helper. She was having a Creative Memories workshop and wanted Samantha to entertain her 3 year old. This friend had babysat Samantha the other day and saw how well that Samantha and her daughter played together, so she suggested it. It went great, Samantha had a great time and so did my friend's daughter. And Samantha earned $5 for her time (I told her not to pay too much - just to give her an idea that working earns you money).
She must have done a good job because my friend invited her back to help again next month!
