Failing Moment During Take Kids to Work Day

When 'National Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day' aka 'Take Kids to Work Day' happened, I was excited to bring my son to work with me. I planned to WOW him with my adult real job skills and inspire good work habits.

But of course my plans didn't go as I hoped.

First, a change in my plans for the day meant I had to go somewhere else before going to work. Since it was an adult only thing, my son went to school.

I thought about getting him after my morning plans but, it would have made even more late for work. Being late to work is not a good "worker" example to set with my son sooooooo

I just went to work. Alone.

But after work I decided to take my son to an event I had to stop in that evening. Since it was a food focused event, I figured we could take pictures together, talk about blogging and still have a "work" moment.

Nope. My son grabbed a seat, then a donut, turned on his iPad and left me to do the "work" at the event.

So much for take MY kid to work this year.

Have you taken your kid to work with you?
