Milestone

Josiah started his 1st job today. Babysitting 2 kids each morning for 45 minutes and then walking them to school. I don't think he is getting paid enough but... it will be good experience for him and he is excited about it. I can't wait for him to get home from School, so I can hear how his first day went! :)

Amy,
He is getting $20. a week. I thought he would get about $30. and his teacher thought between 30-$40! Maybe he will ask for a raise...or just get a paper route!

Oh he needs at least $40.00 in my book.First job How exciting.

I should mention that the kids Joe is looking after are in Grades 2 and Grade 5. So...the Grade 5 child is "almost" able to babysit themselves... I think that is part of the reason why Joe isn't making much.

Anyway! His 1st day went very well and was the best part of his day (so he said)! :)

Congratulations Josiah! No matter what he's getting paid, he will now have something wonderful to put on his resume. My kids each babysit before they obtained their first part-time jobs. Very good experience.
