Take Your Daughter to Work Day

My mother-in-law is out of town for a few days. My husband had an all day customer meeting yesterday. I had a systems meeting with IT that I couldn't really miss. So where did that leave Brigid?

Why, in the office with mommy, of course, because customer absolutely trumps IT in our world.


Brigid was  universally adored, because who can resist a curly-headed toddler in skinny jeans? Now, that may have ended once Brigid figured out how to open the door to my office and decided it would be funny to run down the hall, giggling like a loon, but I managed to barricade her in the office using three or four chairs so I could get done what I needed to get done.

After she screamed her way through a conference call (thank heavens for the mute button on the office phones...), we finished up with IT (our IT guy LOVED Brigid. B was a little less certain about him, though...), and I got the poor kid out of the office before she could hit full-on meltdown mode.

Unfortunately, she made up for it in the car on the way home, because I knew I couldn't let her fall asleep if I wanted her to nap at all in the afternoon, and I definitely wanted her to nap because I did have more work to do from home. And when I spent the twenty minute drive repeatedly ignoring her requests for her 'night-night', no matter how nicely she asked for it...well, she let her displeasure be known.

I'm just glad Steve can stay home with her today.

Yesterday was Tuesday, you know, so feel free to check out my Style Lush post on my new Land's End tote, if you're interested...


  1. Adorable! And with skinny jeans? Good lord, give people a chance. Too cute.

  2. i give my son 20 minutes to keep himself pre-occupied with all of my stuff downstairs before he remembers the stairs....then it's time to go!

  3. Brigid is just so adorable as always...Alex wreaks the same kind of havoc when I have to bring him to work...takes me a day just to clean up my desk after she leaves.


Leave a comment, if you'd like...I'd love to hear from you!
