Yup, getting that first check in the middle of a pay period minus the taxes is a shocker.

Cool, you guys seem to have a great relationship. I hope mine is as easy when he get's his first job!

That child seems to think I own a bank and money is easy to get.

Children!!

It's good to see he understands exactly what mommy goes through now.

Smooches :)

I still have my first paystub. $205.40 after taxes. I was 17 and thought that was a lot of money. 10 years later, they're taking four times that much out in taxes alone. How I wish I was still a kid with no bills to pay.

He doesn't have to pay taxes. He can claim exempt. Ask your tax specialist. Anyhooo he is growing into Man so nice to see one starting out. Just keep him away from them fast tail girls. He will do just fine.

That is so sweet. I tell we as parent, uncle, aunts, whatever need to show our kids lessons of life. At least you tried to tell him, but eventually along with our help they learn themselves.

**by the way, your very welcome regarding the shout out, can I have your autograph?** LOL

Awww... well the opposite happened to me. I started work in the middle of the pay period so I missed the first check altogether... so my check when it came the next pay period was for like a check and a half. I wasn't expecting it but when I read the check I almost passed out. LOL
