Apparently there is a holiday (?) in the US where parents get to take their kids to work for the day. I don't remember this day from when I was a kid, so it either didn't exist way back then or it wasn't nearly as big of a thing as it is now. Anyway, today was take your kids to work day.
I found out on my drive to work when the personalities on the radio had their kids in the studio. Naturally they had listeners call in and talk about taking their kids to work. Once I got to downtown, parents were rushing to work, kids in tow. I finally got to work and there were kids everywhere. And events for parents and their kids. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that there probably wasn't much work done today. But that's okay because everybody seemed to have a lot of fun.
I didn't take this day as hard as I might have in the past, but it did make me think that this is yet another thing that infertility took from me. I'll never get to share my job with my child. I'll never get to take my child on a tour of campus or show them my office. Just a little gut punch that I wasn't expecting.
