Last week, my little girls went to work with the Big Dog for Take Your Child to Work Day. Warwick prepared all week for his guests, but he still looked a bit nervous as they hit the door to venture out into his Work Odyssey.
I keep telling these little jokers what wonderful lives they have, and what a wonderful daddy they have. But they just roll their eyes.
“Aren’t you excited about going to work with Daddy?” I say.
“Yeh.” they say.
“You don’t sound excited. ” I say.
“Well it’s just about space and stuff, ” they say.
Just about “space and stuff”? Sheesh.
Anyway, here it is. The evidence. That they really do have a pretty neat Poppa, and he really does take his job (as a Daddy) very seriously.
The first half of the day was spent learning all about Space, Astronauts, Shuttles, and the International Space Station. They made all sorts of crafts, including rockets . . . . .
They also learned about the kinds of foods astronauts eat in space. And look, Daddy even sprung for some Space Age Dehydrated Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream at the gift shop.
But, as always, I think their favorite part was lunch.
