Take Your Kid To Work Day

To my son Tommy,

Today you turned a normal work day into a father son work day.  I don't know when it is officially "Take Your Son To Work Day" but you decided for us it is today.  You woke up and you just wanted to be with your father.  So we got up and dressed.  We brushed our teeth together, ate breakfast together, went to church together.  When it was time for us to part ways, time for dad to head off to work, you weren't having any of it.  How can I turn down a sad sobbing boy who just wants to spend time with his daddy.  You have had some tiring days in the past couple days and been heading to sleep early.  Many times this week, you were zonked out before I got home from work.  I wasn't even working late every day, but I guess the busy day of a three year old can make anyone want to get to sleep before 6pm.  So I said okay and you are here at work with me.

You have been well behaved so far.  You played on your ipad some.  You have colored great works of art for others to pin up at their desks.  You have walked around and met friends and politely discussed things with them.  You had some time with your cousin Harrison who came up to the office for a bit.  And now you are running around the office singing "Grand Old Flag" for anyone who will listen.  Surprisingly I have gotten a good amount of work done, though that is probably due to Roro entertaining you a bit.  SO I am not sure if anyone else can say they have gotten a good amount of work done.  You may be a distraction, but you are one darned cute distraction and every now and then a cute distraction is what you need at work on a beautiful (but chilly) Friday in October.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
