SAY Media has this tradition (I later learned that this was actually a national event of some sort) of welcoming employee's kids to work for a day, so of course I brought Maelys in, so that she understand a little bit better what daddy does when he is "going to work". Prior to that it was fuzzy in her head, for sure. Each time she wanted me to leave her alone she'd say: "Daddy, go to work. go now".
We had lot of fun activities (drawing on tshirts, touring the office) and then I rode her back to her daycare. She was Sooo proud when I dropped her in the park:
in a BICYLE ("the blue one with the red one")
in front of all her friends from the daycare
after touring daddy's office
She was like a princess arriving late to a ball because she had so much fun at this other event first.
I'm glad to work for a company where we can have such events, thank you SAY Media, especially Moira, Nicki and everyone who helped to make it a great event for Maelys. Here are a few pictures of the event:
I don't know what she was negotiating with Ben, hopefully something on my behalf. She wouldn't leave Ben's office, that was funny considering that she was so shy initially.
I see 4 babies on that picture. how many can you spot? Moira was nice enough to give us a private tour away from the crowd of other kids. We are in the studio, fixing their art.
This was my shared-office for 3 months. It was a bit like that, only different (less colors, more laptops).
