Earlier this week, the nanny couldn’t come to work, so I “stayed home” with the kids. I still had a call I needed to participate in, because it the thing we were working on was due the next day to the rest of the team. Henry has a long history of joining in on my video calls. Sometimes he just sits nearby so he can see everyone, sometimes he sits in my lap so he can wave to everyone, and sometimes he wants to hear what they’re saying (I usually wear headphones). The other day, he asked for my headphones, and proceeded to have an in-depth conversation with Josh about Minecraft, while my other co-worker, Dan tried to continue working on our project.
This is so much about why my job is so important to me. It means a lot that my co-workers indulge my babies and don’t see them as distractions, but as valuable FUTURE BLOGGERS 😉 Did I mention that we’re hiring?
