“So, my children continue to ask for a new cell phone, an allowance, and to go places,” she captioned the post.

“Yesterday I told them that I’ve heard their requests and that I’ll have a surprise for them today when they get home from school.

“SURPRISE!!! It’s a whole hiring event! If you want it, work for it, earn it! And yes, I also have an in home credit union lol.”
