Warning: To Those With Young Children

Posted on October 31st, 2008 in Daily Mortgage/Housing News - The Real Story, Mr Mortgage's Personal Opinions/Research

Times are tough. Most of us are cutting back and even have second jobs just to get by especially if you are saddled with an exotic loan, multiple homes, large consumer debt etc. Just make sure you spend time with your children – that’s the most important thing in life.

Below was sent to me as an example of what could happen when you don’t spend enough time with your children and do the things parents should, such as check their home work. The parent in question works at Home Depot in the tool area selling things such as shovels.  This may have not been obvious to the teacher judging by little Maggie’s proud drawing of her hard working mother. -Best, Mr Mortgage

  1. I can’t really tell what “mommy” is doing, but if my guess is correct, my, oh my, it looks like Maggie is watching programming that is not age appropriate

  2. Mr. M,

    Thanks for this piece of reality. I spent 15 years working off more than my tail, saving, not buying a house and having my passport stamped weekly. Recently I ended all that, got married and at 40 have my first 1 year old and one arriving soon. I’m enjoying this time with family and reading your blog as I intend to buy in San Diego when the time right.

    I’m hopeful you’ll still be blogging then.

  3. “I want to be just like mommy!(daddy) Now that line has been around for a good long time. I really don’t see what there is in that content to be warned about. You can look at this in a few ways. Who knows how the eyes of a child judges a parent or if it is in the literal sense? Its obvious to me in this instance that this chlid loves her mom. I think we read way too much into something like this if we are thinking the kid wants to actually sell shovels for a living or not. Its honest work and maybe all that this mother can do at the moment to support her family. Despite what the picture may or may not interpret, Maggie just might turn out to be a pretty decient human being…like her mom.

  4. this is funny and cute. nice find.

  5. 5755hsa, the picture *looks* like mom is dancing around a stipper pole for cash.
