Bring Your Spawn To Work Day

I'm joking! I love kids... as evidenced by the fact that I babysat Wednesday and will babysit tonight. Maybe that speaks more to the fact that I'm all about extra cash... but I digress.

All day Thursday there were rugrats running around the office, intermittently screaming or giggling - it was somewhat jarring considering my typical workday soundtrack of fingers clicking on keyboards. I didn't realize so many of my coworkers had kids... it surprises me when New Yorkers breed intentionally. What do you think is harder: raising kids in the jungle or NYC? At least in the jungle you wouldn't have to carry a stroller up the subway stairs... just saying.

In honor of Bring Your Kids to Work Day, I will begin mothering my child substitute - Hodgie - as soon as he arrives at 10 p.m. I actually will bring him to work tomorrow... too bad he didn't arrive Thursday - he could have colored, decorated cupcakes and done a scavenger hunt with the actual children.

Anyhow, Hodgie's audition is at 4:45 p.m. on Friday so please, please, please pray for him!

Bill Maher this weekend... If you get to bring your kids to work, I get to bring a small mariachi band. And at least my annoyance will go bother someone else if you hand it $20.
