Today, my oldest son, Noah, went to work with me. This event was the first for both of us. I was actually very anxious about it. I couldn’t even sleep the night before. Wasn’t sure if I was nervous, anxious, worried, or what. Our company didn’t even plan anything for the kids. Dumb. So I made a welcoming sign and made up a “to-do” list for him. He really enjoyed it which made me happy as well. I gave him a tour of our building and he was amazed that we had a gym. Very humble gym but that was the highlight of his tour. Afterwards, he told me that he wants to work for my company too when he grows up so that he can go to the gym as well. Haha. Ummm~ son. You have a membership to Lifetime???
Anyways, he got to send out an email to my team and all my team members were nice enough to email him back with very very sweet words. Love them for it. All my cubical neighbors showered him with love as well.
After 3 hours, I took him out to lunch. Mommy joined us and we had a great time together. Afterwards, I rushed him back to school and returned to work.
I realized unless you have a very clear agenda for them, they’ll be bored to death. I really wished our company had a program for all the children that visited. Regardless, I was really happy that Noah got to witness where I worked while meeting some folks including my manager and director.
Next year, it’s your turn Emilee!
She can be “wowed” by our gym as well.
