Every summer, I take the big kids to work with me one day each. But this summer, the little kids want to go, too. I have 2 work days per week, so that means the next two weeks are going to be, erm, challenging.
Today, I took Jack. He was radiantly happy about the whole thing. He kept asking me if he could go to work with me and he asked me while I was talking to friends at the pool the other day, and I answered yes kind of absently, and he went running to Ben almost crying with joy about the whole thing. It was very sweet. He was very sweet all day, and I got tons of work done. He was more than happy to watch Fuller House again and play games on my computer.
We had a delicious lunch at this new massive dining hall by my office that was perfect. I am going to load up my ID with cash and start eating there because both of our lunches were only $12.
There was a small mishap when he tried to put a donut on his tray and dropped everything and shattered plates, but he rebounded quickly. And the whole cafeteria was full of campers attending various sports and STEM camps and I had such nostalgia for my speech camp days.
