Take your children to work day

No, it's not today but I've been thinking.... We have been watching some old movies with the kids: Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, etc. and we have been enjoying the bonus features of how the movies were made. It would have made for one very exciting take your children to work day if they could see all the work that goes into it.

Given that many of us now work in offices I gather that take your children to work day must be pretty boring (for the kids anyway). Take what Anne-Marie Slaughter considers exciting and rewarding:

In between, the days were crammed with meetings, and when the meetings stopped, the writing work began—a never-ending stream of memos, reports, and comments on other people’s drafts.

Well, maybe not this aspect of it but one can’t help but think that she misses it.
