Bring on Summer...I'm Ready!  

Posted by mindyluwho

I have a hot new job! Well a hot new cool job. Actually it's hot for me, cool for the kids...

Here's where I'm working for the summer...




I'm working at a water park! Cool huh? Well, like I said, cool for the kids, because they get to be there while I get to sweat my socks off serving hamburgers and pizzas! I work for the catering department. We set up and serve for the group events. My shift usually runs from 10-1:30ish, so on the days I work, my older kids come with me and play, and my MIL brings my younger two over around 1:30 and then I don my suit and we play until the park closes! I only have to work a total of 12 shifts over the summer to get the very COOL benefits--a summer pass for each member of my family! Usually we get to go only one time each summer, as a day pass costs $25.00 per person, or a summer pass is $80.00. Multiply that by 8 and, well, you see why we only get to go once per season. But not THIS year! We can go as often as we want...so often that we might even get sick of it...NOT!

i'm jealous. not of the working part, but the free passes part. my kids have been begging to go.

The serving hamburgers and pizzas part sounds hot and exhausting, but your kids will definitely have a great summer! Way to go finding such a cool place to work where your kids can spend the summer. :-)

I shouldn't leave out the fact that you'll get to play as well, which will make your shifts well worth it!

How FABULOUS! You are the coolest mom to do that for your family! I've known other smart moms who have done the same thing...such a great idea! :D
