how a 4 year old gets fired

Amara lives to work.

When jobs are handed out at school, Amara prays she's able to serve her class in some capacity.

Some days she's the door holder. Other days, she feeds the classroom pet.

But on Thursday, Amara came home disappointed. She didn't have a job.

I tried to explain to her as motherly as I could that she would have to take turns with the other children. That she couldn't always have a job.

But that's when she told me she lost her job.


Amara said she and Abby were "whispering" while the teacher was talking. So their jobs were revoked.

"I was supposed to be the messenger," Amara said sadly.

Yup, that'll get a four year old fired.
