The narrator loved the way her baby reacted to the lights, colors, and music and was understandably crushed that she had to leave her baby with a neighbor so she could work (Olsen, Paragraph 8).

I always assumed I would do the same, but after seeing my parents’ marriage fall apart and my Mom struggling with the new change in her life and feeling as if she was lost and had no skills to get a job and provide for herself, she felt as if she had lost everything. I did not want that. Luckily, my brother and I were pretty much all grown and headed out on our own. Seeing how my Mom struggled with no education and no job experience I made sure I did not follow in her footsteps by working at an early age and getting my Cosmetologists license. All of the experiences I had up until this date have made into the person I am today.
