Hey, I just got a tip for serving breakfast.

Fri, 03/26/2010 - 06:28 -- Birdie

"Are you done? Here, I'll clear off your stuff." I say as I move towards his breakfast tray......

"No, WAIT mama!" My son runs off to get his piggy bank. "Can you open this?"

"What's this for?" I ask.

"Listen, I'm trying to give you some money here. I saved up some money and I'm putting it on the tray here." he says as he looks at me imploringly.

"Like a tip?" I ask, trying not to smile too much or assume it's some strange money gesture he picked up from his father going on about money all of the time...

I have an internship starting and I'm really trying to get off on the right foot by:

A) Communicating as realistically as possible with my client about time constraints that I have as a still student single mama

B) Learning how to politely decline to do something if it is beyond my time-constraints/realm of knowledge

C) Learning how to SAVE AS MUCH TIME AS POSSIBLE for myself and the client by making sure that we are on THE SAME PAGE design-wise- aka "Getting to know you, getting to know ALL, about you......."
