    Every mom wonders what her child will grow up to be, and Tina is no different. She says one day when she and 4-year-old Alice were playing pretend hair salon, she was doing Alice’s hair and asked: "Hello ma'am. What's your name? And what do you do?" Alice answered, "I get paid to dance at parties." Let’s hope no dollar bills are involved …

    It’s reported that Tina spent a lot of time agonizing over the decision to have a second child. "What's so great about work anyway?” she writes in her new memoir, Bossypants. “Work won't visit you when you're old.
