God my son is so cute!!!

My son has an interview today!!! Yeah for James!!! Target called him yesterday when he got home from school.

James:(calling me at work) mom target called I have an interview after school.

Me: that's great son.....congrats

James: Mom I have to be there at 3 and I get out of school at 2

Me: Do you need me to take you? Do you know how to get there on the bus?

James: I think I know how to get there on the bus....can I leave now to time myself to see just how long it takes?

Me: sure sweetie......(smiling really hard)

James: Mom can we practice some interview questions when you get home?

Me: sure baby that's a good idea...

James: mom I want this REALLY bad!

Me: I know son but if you don't get it....that just means that there is something BETTER coming your way!!!

James: mom you always say stuff like that!

Me: I always mean it too!!!

James: o.k I gotta get to the bus stop....we will talk more when you get home!!!

When I get home he has a long face........"son what's wrong....you were so happy earlier"

James: mom I can't fit any of my dress pants and I don't have anything I feel is appropriate for an interview!

Me:(really smiling hard inside cause he's such a responsible young man) baby don't worry.....I will get you something!! Out of all my male friends someone will loan us something!!!!

James: thanks mom!

We go to a friends house who gives him pants and a nice shirt...another friend gives him dress shoes.....he is smiling hard....they both wish him good luck......

This morning I walk by his bathroom....he is shaving and primping and I smile.....dam my baby is growing up...he comes in my room and says "mom am I lined up good? should I shave it all off? Of course you look fine!! I kiss him goodbye and he says "mom I will call you as soon as I get home......We me and my youngest wish him good luck..... I almost gave him his cell phone back but then I remembered shit he is still grounded until report cards...LOL Hell all the "proud momma moments had me feeling all mushy and gushy and I almost punked out.....LMAO
My youngest said " I really hope he gets a job or he is gonna drive me crazy all summer talking about a job!!! "LOL

So hopefully it's in God's plan for my baby to become employed today......if not......we will keep looking!!!

It's days like this I think DAM I love being a mom!!!

There are so many kids out there that go to interviews in ragged jeans and ripped tee's and have an attitude of I don't care if I get the job or not, just give me the money. So he is sure to get the job because he is taking the time to show he cares how he presents himself. That kid is a winner. Way to go!

I work next door to a HR office. You would not believe how folks that come looking for jobs are dressed! If they would put in one-fourth the effort your son did, they would be more successful.

I LOVE the Red Dot Boutique! They also have great internship programs for their employees.

My brother just graduated from college and is moving to Arizona to work at the corporate HQ of the Red Dot Boutique.
