Teddy came home from his very first day of real "employment". He's not quite 16 (August 24) but has managed (thanks to dad's help) to get a 4 week stint with a very reputable roofing company. He gets paid $12 per hour....not bad for a kid in school. They specialize in commercial products, so most of their jobs are on flat roofs...thankfully! The thing is....it was a 14 hour day. And it was hot. And there was flame throwing. And hot black tar. And he starts tomorrow at 6:15 a.m. And he stinks. But damn....is it bad for a mother to say her son looks good in a hard hat and steel toed boots?!?!
