So, I just wanted to record some moments of NK on the job. My boss has been quite flexible with this whole maternity leave and baby mama thing. (It helps that I am part time and paid a contract labor rate.) (It also helps that I work in an office of all women.) (It also helps that I can do a lot of my work at home and on unscheduled hours.) (It also helps that Nate is in school and loves it.) (It also helps that I love my job and am good at it.) BUT STILL I feel like not many bosses would allow their employees to bring their children to some of the places my boss has allowed.
One morning our whole team (five of us) went to look at office space in downtown Little Rock. We met with our real estate agent and viewed four different properties. It was the morning of LR's surprise snow shower so I bundled NK up in Nate's old bear suit and we all took turns carrying her.
One afternoon got together to shoot our company Christmas card on ice. Yep, on ice. NK pleasantly hung out in her car seat (In hindsight, maybe I should have brought a stroller that day?!) while I laced up my skates and twirled around the rink (You can't tell from the photo but right before I was practicing my sow cow...cue music: What Would Brian Boitano Do.)

Every Tuesday and Thursday she comes to the office with me. Mostly, it looks like this:

I have to say that a lot of it is NK herself. When my boss and I first discussed the possibility of Bring Your Baby to Work, I thought 'no freaking way.... not possible.' If she were a different baby (read: if she screamed her head off day and night) then this would be impossible. I know it can't last forever (and probably not even for much longer...eventually I will have to actually GO to meetings with clients again) but it's working for right now!
