Is that a violation of child labor laws?

Cute story:

I was trying to take advantage of the last bit of daylight a little bit ago and went out to water our flowers. When I came in, I heard my daughter talking on my cell phone. As it turns out, while I was outside my MOB for this weekend called to make sure all was a go. Here's how it went:

MOB: Can I speak to April?
DD: She's outside.
MOB: I need to speak with her about our wedding cake.
DD: Oh, ok...what color would you like?
MOB: <laughing> I believe I'll just call her back in a little bit.
DD: That'll be fine. Thanks for calling.

I got such a kick out of that. I thought you would too.

Which lovely angel from your avatar was this? I could totally see one of my little girls doing that too.

That would be the brunette. When I talked to the MOB, she was still laughing.

Yeah, once my 10-year-old nephew said, oh, by classmate is going to call you for this birthday cake. He wants one. but he'll probably talk to you tomorrow at school's pizza night.

too funny!

That reminds me of my 8 year old. I run a business out of my home where I provide birthday party loot bags, balloons, decorations, etc. for kids parties. I went to pick my daughter up from school the other day and I heard her talking to a friend of hers whose birthday was coming up. My daughter was telling her that she should get her Mom to call me and I could "take care of everything" for her party. I had to smile!

Your stories remind me of my DD too. She told me the other day, "Jordan's birthday is next week and he wants a vanilla cake with chocolate icing. I can take it to him at school if you want me to."

That is too cute! My daughter is 6 and she is always "volunteering" my services! Every party she goes to she always says.. that cake is not as good as my moms. Did you buy that at Walmart???? haha

My children are older 7-17 (5 total) they are all promoting me in some way. I have children from the elementary telling me what they would like its very precious.

Oh wow I thought I was the only one with a kid that done stuff like this....I had just ordered some new cards and noticed about 200 missing from the brand new box come to find out she took them to school and gave one to each of the 5th graders in the school plus everyone of the teachers...when I found out I was like oh God people are gonna think im horrible but then the next day I got a call from one of the moms who had gotten a card from her kid and she thought it was hilarious...I have gotten tons of orders from those cards
