When I ran into parents around town as school was wrapping up, everyone popped the same question:
What is your daughter doing this summer?
I pretty much shrugged my shoulders and said, “Camp Mom.”
When my daughter asked why we can’t go on vacation or why she can’t go to camp like the majority of her classmates, she knew the answer before I responded.
I don’t have the money.
I freelance and have my own business, but I always have a full-time role in addition. However, I along with many other people recently got laid off due to a company liquidation. That means that so far, my summer has been spent interviewing, working on freelance projects and acting as the official cruise director for “Camp Mom.”
