Today is Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day, and it can be a great and memorable one for the kids and the parents as well.

I remember the days my Mom and Dad brought me to work as if they were yesterday. I can remember what it looked like and who I met, and I remember my dad's workspace and my mom's desk as if i were standing there right now.

The one thing that really sticks out in my brain is the difference between what it really looked like and the picture I had painted in my mind. Before I saw their workplaces in person, I would paint a picture in my mind of what it might look like as my parents told stories of their day at work.

Those stories of the visits to their work actually still come up in conversation all these years later. Pretty amazing when you think about it. So, if you have  the opportunity to take part in Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day today, take advantage of it!
