A blog about the grief after losing a child to Niemann Pick, Type C, a rare disease, and how I'm moving forward with my life.

Do you know what today is?

Today, April 24, is Take Your Child to Work Day. Bet you didn't know that. You may have known it as "Take Your Daughter to Work Day". This day is always the 4th Thursday in April.

This is the 21st year of the program. This year's theme is "Plant a Seed, Grow a Future".

To quote from the official website:

Designed to be more than a career day, the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® program goes beyond the average “shadow” an adult. Exposing girls and boys to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day is important, but showing them the value of their education, helping them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, and providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future and begin steps toward their end goals in a hands-on and interactive environment is key to their achieving success. Each year, we develop new interactive activities and partnerships that will assist us in taking girls and boys to the future they dream of.

Today I am lucky enough to be able to take my work home to my daughter, although she is really too young to understand what it means to work. She is just happy to have mommy around.

See the computer in the corner? Yes, I am truly working!
