Today is "Take Your Child To Work Day"

Last year I took my daughter in the office with me, and she was bored. This year I told her I was working from home & planned on doing a ton of laundry and cleaning.

She picked school willingly.

  1. That's quite smart of you to do. lol i like that can i use that some time?

  2. Ahh the joys that come from working at home – by yourself

  3. i wouldnt know because i work outside of my home

  4. I have an office outside of my home, but I don't get in every day. I am self-employed so it's not like there are a lot of 'activities' planned for take your kid to work day!

  5. I am in the same boat as you. One year I lucked out because I was leading an all-day workshop, so my daughter was able to come and see her mom in action.

  6. i get what your saying. i deliver newspapers in the mornings

  7. thats awesome

  8. LOL!

    LOL!! Too funny!

  10. That is a good one. Thanks for sharing and allowing me to smile at that one! Enjoy your day!

  11. +Lynette Young now your learning but how old is the child.
    this usually works till they are about 8 or 9 then a parent has to change strategy

  12. Today is standardized testing day here (Texas). I am sure my daughter would have picked your laundry and cleaning over the sheer boredom of bubbling in answer sheets.

  13. Its awesome for the kids at my job. Kids sing favorite songs and take pictures with over a green screen with backgrounds of their favorite celebs. They love it.

  14. I keep on hearing of these "take your child to work day"s but im just curious as to when you pick the child up, how long do they survive on average? :P joke

  15. Goodluck Macha says:

    I think that, Next year you should do the same like last year.Then we will see

  16. My daughter will visit my husband at his office for an hour, and she'll play ping pong and draw on the dry erase boards. I don't think she could handle more than that.

  17. My youngest daughter is here at work. She was being so quiet that I forgot she was here when I went out to pick up lunch for the coworkers. Not my best mommy moment
