It's that time of year again! Take your Daughter/Child to work Day. Are you or your partner planning on participating? Does your employer support this day? Do anything extra special on that day for the children who come to work? 

 

I 'work' at home for the most part, so I guess mine come to work every day!

My company has lots of activities for kids that sound really fun.  My baby is still in my belly so I will be bringing him to work with me just like I have for the last 7 months.  I hope someday he can participate more fully and enjoy it.

I am a SAHM and my partner works construction: no way would his job allow a child on the premises.

Partner to Rbikenew.gif ('03); Parent to T read.gif('07), Aviolin.gif ('10), and E ecbaby2.gif ('13)

Nope. My hubby is a funeral director and 99% of what he does isn't really appropriate for little kids to come and observe.

Nah, I wish I could but there's too much heavy equipment at my job. Dh is selfemployed and the kids help him at work too much for it to be anything special.

Yep. DH works for Dark Horse Comics, so dd went with him today. First time she's done it. Of course I work at home, so she's at work with me every day!!

Anyone have pictures of their kiddos at work?

I'm a sahm.  Dh works in an office doing dry, esoteric things.  The kids were better off in school.


Someone moved my effing cheese.

Two of my 3 would think they had died and gone to heaven... and my dh would be following!
