During the summer, my daughter came to me and told me that she wanted to buy a computer.

She’s a writer and poet, and she wanted a laptop.

And she wanted to buy it herself.

My kids have always wanted jobs. They’ve asked to do lemonade stands, and they’ve asked to do dog walking, which was a little outside of my comfort zone because I don’t let them go beyond our block.

Here it is, you guys.

Buuuuut…

I have to tell you something first: I don’t really love to cook.

wish I did, but I don’t.
