Jeans and Confidence

My sixteen-year-old son landed his first job. A real job. The kind that takes out taxes.

I’m so proud of him. I always have been.

I took him shopping for new jeans. I wanted him to feel confident for his interview. Or maybe because I just wanted to spend time with him. C’mon! Let’s buy you some jeans!

He found the perfect pair.

Except the next morning as he drove off to his interview, he didn’t wear the near jeans. He didn’t need them to feel confident. He aced his interview and his sandwich test on his own.

I should have known. He’s been a confident little sucker for years.

He told me that he can now make better sandwiches than me. You know what? I believe him.

My 16 yo son just landed his first job. #confidence I knew he could do it!
