Who's the boss?

The boy has this little game he plays with TLM sometimes. When she starts bossing him around, he'll give her a look and say "TLM - who's the boss here?". If she points to me, the boy will smile indulgently and nod - and then ask her again until she points to him.

Well, for the next fortnight I will literally be the boy's boss. Yep, that's right. We've hired him to join the little team of busy bees for that little project I posted about earlier. He'll be a part-timer of course, since TLM is only in daycare for a few hours per day. And he'll have to keep a low profile and avoid acting like he knows a lot.

It's going to be interesting.

Nepotism.
Do your coworkers know or is it a secret?

Violet said...

Antoinette: I sure will, especially if we have any "domestics"...

nigel: they all know - at least, 4 of us do. The rest will find out on Monday!

Aha sleeping with the boss ;-)

This is the first day that Ray and I haven't worked together since we met ;-( we did it for over 3 years and no one complained (at least that we know of). Just save the bum pinching for at home.

kazzer: I bet you were very bossy to him too!

donnasoowho: we've avoided the bum-pinching, but the boy let slip a "sweetie" early on in the day.
