Work is a four letter word

Today is Take Your Child to Work Day. My youngest is supposed to be at work with me. I've been in my home office for about an hour. He's already bored.
Hmm. I don't think that was the intent of the day. I wish he could see the exciting part of my day -- what goes on inside my head, before the writing.

The original intent of what was then "take your daughter to work day" was to expose our young girls to the work place. By visiting a work site, young girls were supposed to see what life would be like as a professional in their futures.

However, it has turned into a unofficial teacher planning day. Elementary and Middle Schools are empty of kids today -- and the poor ones that are attending school are probably watching movies or doing busy work.

The purpose of the day has faded and now it's a really silly day. A wasted day for most kids.

Maybe they should be in school - doing THEIR work.
