Did you know that April 24th was Take Your Child to Work Day? I often work a good amount of hours during busier times, and when I have slower times at work, I make it a point to have a special “mommy and me” date. While it isn’t feasible for me to take my child to work, I have enjoyed volunteering in Lily’s kindergarten class when I can take a day off work and being a part of her daily world. It sure is fun to see how she spends her days, what her classmates are like and how hard her teacher works!
Walnut and his mom agree that it would be fun if he could go to work with her, and they fantasize about the adventures they could share. While they realize that scenario can’t always happen, Walnut’s mother assures him that he is always on her mind, and together they come up with ways to have a physical presence for each other even when at work or at school.
Working parents know that in spite of time away from home, their children are never far from their hearts and minds. This light-hearted story provides parents an opportunity to reassure children on their importance in busy parents’ lives.
