Now that I don't work inside a prison (much) my kids can actually participate in Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day!
My key card was a big hit, as were the empty cubicles that they commandeered and the copy machine.
The department put on a career fair for the kids, with everything from IT to Telemedicine.
|Learning how to take off soiled gloves. A very universal skill|
|Telemedicine. Syd is still a little traumatized after seeing the inside of her ear. Eli notsomuch.|
Because it was a special occasion, we went out to lunch. I learned that there is a place that sells homemade ice cream within walking distance of my office. I will likely regret knowing this, but OMG.
Afterwards the kids said that it would have been cool to actually watch me work. I hated to tell them that all that time I spent looking at my computer WAS my work. Adulting is glamorous.
