You didn't play with any toys?
By Heather VanCura on Apr 27, 2008
In the US, Thursday was Take
Our Daughters To Work Day. I brought my older daughter (6 years
of age) into my "office" this afternoon.
I worked on my blog, had a meeting, and answered some email. I
told her about my job and the parts I enjoy the most. When I asked
her if that sounded like fun she responded with a blank-faced "no".
"Why not?", I asked; she proceeded to explain that I didn't
"play with any toys". I guess my SunRay, PowerBook and
BlackBerry don't qualify as toys to a 6 year old. Anyway, I told her
how actually my job in the JCP program
is more like her teacher at school, helping folks play nice together
on the playground. That seemed to satisfy her, but she was still
somewhat nonplussed. We'll try again next year...
