My son got the job!

He's done with college and been on a few interviews. Two turned into second interviews and he just now informed us his first choice offered him a job.

I'm so emotional right now at the thought of him earning his own money. Life can't get better, right?

Make sure you find out when pay day is so you can hit him up for gas money.

Two of my four are making more than double what I made at retirement. One is making 1 1/2 times more. Only one is making less than I did at retirement. My oldest just posted that he made his last college loan payment today....after 14 years! The other will be paying for awhile. He went to vet school and also bought into 1/2 of a veterinary operation. Between him and his wife, their college loan payments are almost the same as their mortgage. Ugh! So glad I'm not in their shoes. But it is always great when we raise our kids and they actually DO turn into decent and responsible adults.

to your son!

It really is weird when they are making their own money, maintaining their own apartments, paying for their own insurance.

Too bad mine is still on our phone plan!!

Then just when they get established they go and decide to go to graduate school.

But enjoy this time - it's a really good thing!!

Congrats to you, your wife and son. Is this near where you live or where he was going to college? Now that mine are out & have jobs I have found out how important those internships are. Mine didn't do it and probably should have as their friends got jobs with those companies. Anyway, remind him of all the socks he took. Maybe he'll buy you a six pack. Better yet a six pack of beer to go with the socks!

That's pretty funny. My son takes kitchen gadgets. He especially loves funnels and garlic peelers, but the cherry pitter has gone missing, too. Kids are weird, man.

Congratulations to your son. How exciting.
You should prepare him a congratulations basket filled with 2 weeks worth of socks. "Welcome to the real world son". "Dad won't be near enough to bail you out on this one"
