The Pros and Cons of Being a Working Woman

Now you have to understand that this list is from the point of view of someone who previously didn’t work for cough*her entire life*cough and is now a full time nanny. If you’re a little slow to the pick up, that someone is me. Your pros and cons list might be extremely different from mine. And probably way better too. Because everyone thinks they’re so frickin’ great these days.

Pro: I get to play and be silly.tumblr_n1gu2lT3gT1rpduwho1_500

Con: I have to wake up at an hour where playing and being silly is the equivalent to death.tumblr_mzz80kyNsU1qj09eqo1_250

Con: I have to walk like a kid.tumblr_myhlzexUOD1rgilweo1_500

Con: I have to spend my own money :(tumblr_lk0zjjPlts1qb8oz7o1_500
