O Mother, Where Art Thou

I'm sitting here in front of the computer, alright, but I haven't been blogging. I've been working on our taxes. Pfffft. This annual torture fest is made all the more complicated this year by the fact that I must prepare a separate return for my 10-year-old daughter. She received a paycheck in 2010. An actual paycheck with money taken out for such necessities as Social Security, a thriving program that I'm sure will still be in existence when my child reaches her age of retirement. But I prepare her tax return with love and pride, for it is the result of payment for her starring role in a series of television ads. And by "starring role," I mean . . . well, you can see for yourself:



What? You didn't see my little movie star? Look again at the :20 mark. That's the back of her head as she high-fives an authority figure. SO WORTH filing an additional tax return.

Karen Peterson said...

That's so funny!

At least she doesn't have any assets.

I can't believe you had to file a tax return for a 10 year old. I did see the back of her head and the high five. Excellent acting.

I want her autograph!

She should give you a cut of her refund proceeds for doing the return paperwork for her.

Taxes. Necessary but life sucking.

Mother Mayhem said...

Well... It was a pretty awesome high five after all...

Oh God - I can't imagine having to do taxes for my children.
But again she is giving a pretty cool High Five!

I'm so glad my dad is an economics professor who willingly does our taxes for us!

I don't care if it was the back of her head, that makes her a TV star! We watch the awful movie my kids were in just to fast forward to the 12 seconds they can be seen.

for some reasons non of them looked like teachers to me .. I don't know why though. Also, I don't know much about Alaska, but the only thing wrong with Alaska's future is Sarah Palin.

An early star. That's cool!

That's really cool. Maybe she needs her own tax guy LOL Speaking of tax guys I had the same tax guy my whole working life, now he's too old to do my taxes. Sigh. I have to work on them sometime this week. Sigh.
