Runs in the Family...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After more than a month of waiting, I finally saw a picture of the newest addition in our family back home. My 3rd grandchild...courtesy of my niece. Here she won't be a grandchild but a great niece. I'm not sure which one I prefer. Both name makes me feel OLD! But I'm glad that the family is growing and the new addition is healthy and good looking. Bias me, eh? Of course...

I was also able to speak with his mother...my niece. Before she got pregnant, she was working at a department store. Her pregnancy had complications so she was forced to quit her job even if she knew she wouldn't be able to get it back. The baby's safety is much more important. When I asked her if she's going to find a new job now that she has given birth already she kinda' hesitated to reply. It turns out she's planning to go back to school. She finished an associate degree in hotel and restaurant management. Jobs in that field are almost non-existent right now thus the thought of going back to school.

She's still not sure what she'll take this time around. She wants to make sure it's something she can use right after graduating or even before she graduates. I suggested cosmetology to her and she seems to like the idea. I have no idea what kind of cosmetology school they have back home but if she's here, Hoover Alabama Cosmetology School at Regency Beauty Institute Hoover 1775 Montgomery Highway S., Hoover, AL. 35244 would have been perfect for her. Aside from being able to finish the course in a year or so, she has control of her time once she starts working. A lot of cosmetologist back home do home service and they're able to build a customer base in a short period of time. With her baby and all, flexibility in work schedule would be a blessing for her....just like her little boy.
