Hi ho, hi ho

Today was National Take Your Child To Work Day. The boy got to go with hubby for the first time this year. The big girl got to go a couple of years ago, but it was the boy this year. Hubby does it as a way to let the kids know that working for the man is hard. They need to be the man, not work for him is the way he sees it. Twice now it has backfired. They both want to work for the phone company.
The boys got to work this morning and their first job was to fix a DSL connection. Hubby was teasing him that he was going to have to crawl under a mobile home. The brave boy that he is was all for it. But hubby found a way around that. The boy was a little disappointed.
He got to replace a lid on a pedestal. Yeah, the job isn't the most glamorous, but it pays the bills. He got to go to the Central Office which is where all the good stuff is. That's where he's sitting on the ladder. He got to help rewire some things. So if your phones aren't working, sorry. It was the boy.
The lucky stiffs, today was a luncheon day. We couldn't have planned that better if we tried. It was an anniversary luncheon at Golden Corral and the boys didn't have to pay for their own lunch. He got to eat with all the guys and pretend he was a big man.
They had a really good day. Being the homeschool mom that I am, I was going to make the boy write a report about his day and use that as my blog. But he was so tired when he got home, he just couldn't even think straight. We told him that's how hubby feels when he gets home every day. As soon as I get the report, I'll post it for you. There was even some overtime tonight. I think that helped contribute to the tiredness.
Have a great day!
