Time ran an article last month about whether it is feasible or not to bring your baby to work. But, indeed some companies are establishing work programs that allow mothers to bring their children to work with them (home away from home?). How far we have come and yet how far we have to go. Some companies let mothers bring their children to work while others still don't give mothers paid maternity leave or pay for reproductive assistance if she is not married. Uh oh...I'm about to get on my Tide box here so, let me go back to the issue at hand...babies at work... I think it's great if it works for you. For me, it would work maybe 30% of the time. When I'm out shopping for clients yes. But, I can't imagine going to a meeting with Baby I on my hip. Heck, I can't even imagine having Baby I home all day and I'm trying to get focused to write a proposal or do some other major work. Uhhhh case in point, I've been trying to write a proposal all day and you see what I'm doing now! Writing this post about why having my baby at work wouldn't work for me!
Maybe for those that are a little more disciplined it would work but, for those with Adult Boredom/Attention Disorder it wouldn't work so well. So, while I plan to have Baby I home with me for 3 days a week, the other 4 days the kid has to go to that expensive daycare/preschool if we are to keep a roof over our heads! And I really don't look good in cardboard! Tell me, would it work for you?
