Am I an SS mom?

<< < (11/11)

I forgot to clarify that DD#2 does still live at home and does not pay rent nor car maintenance/insurance.

This is the first job that she's ever had other than babysitting & lawn mowing for one of the neighbors (plus community volunteering and school . . . she's always been a busy girl.)

Best wishes!

Bold above -- funny you should mention a baseline discussion . . . not necessarily about the haircuts . . . I see a new thread looming ;)

That's a good point. I'll have to ask her about this.

Tea Drinker:
FWIW, knowing that she still lives with you changes the calculation somewhat: you're not saying "I want you to drive to my house so I don't have to drive to your job," because she's making that trip home anyhow. (That's not the only factor, especially given that her employer may have rules about her working outside the salon, but it means the inconvenience isn't equal.)
