The idea of a children's book about working parents entered my mind the other day, and the title "Why Daddy Works" popped into my head. (My husband laughed out loud when I suggested it.) The funny thing is, the book already exists, and it's a relatively new one (2017). In fact, the Google search turned up the following, somewhat suprising, children's book titles:
This list was a lot more sobering than I expected. Which caused me to Google "Why Mommy Works". That search produced this list:
Apparently that last "book" isn't a book at all. Instead it is a comedy podcast. The word sobering would be an interesting descriptor here too ;)
I don't remember our kids ever asking why we worked. Maybe it's because they never knew anything different. (And that reminds me of the recent story Transitioning to Daycare which provides insights from a former daycare teacher about a good age for your child to start going to daycare.)
I had a whole 'nuther story in mind when I started this one, but figure you're busy, so decided this is enough info for one day.
