Halloween Eve

Guess what I'm wearing right now? 

JEANS!  This is the first job I've EVER had (ever!) that I could wear denim to work on Fridays.

And?

I get to watch Middle walk in his Kindergarten Parade today.  At 1:15.

At my old hell job, I would most likely have missed out.  Or I would've had to have taken half a vacation day to watch a 5 minute parade.

But the kicker?

In almost 2 years at my old hell job, not one co-worker, not one, ever had the chance to meet my family.

But today, after the Kindergarten Parade, all 3 boyz are coming with me back to my work for the huDge Halloween party that my company throws for the children.  So in less than one week of work, my boyz get to see where I work and meet my co-workers.

That pretty much says it all.

(Stop rolling your eyes.  I'm still in the honeymoon phase with this new jobby job.  I promise I'll get back to poop and booger talk next week.)


Happy Halloween 2009!

I don't blame you for being excited. For a working mom, this kind of thing makes all the difference in the world!

Congrats again on the new jobby job.

Now that's what I'm talking about on my Kindness blog. How kindness pays off!! That is awesome, my company has a party for the kids also on Halloween, but too bad they are in NJ and I'm not! But it's the idea that counts. Have tons of fun!

This is just awesome! I am so glad your new job is so family friendly!! It is so hard to strike a balance with work and home that it is always nice to hear about employers doing nice things like a kid friendly party.

Enjoy your day!

Your new job sounds like a really good change for you and your family. It's refreshing to hear about someone who actually likes their job!

Fun! And you're making me miss working in a office...a little...sort of...ok not really cuz I love working from home.

But jobs that make you happy and giddy are the best jobs! Enjoy and enjoy some more. You deserve it.

A good company is so important. When I miss my job (which I often do) I miss the company almost as much as the people and the work. Staples is lucky to have you!

Judy said...

YAY! So happy for you ;) A family friendly company makes such a difference...my husbands old company use to have holiday parties for the kids and then one for the adults...its so nice to know your coworkers families and have them meet yours! OUr kids are still friend with some of the kids they met threw work functions!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

I'm excited for you! I get it. I've had terribly un-family-friendly jobs in the past, and I am so grateful for the one I have now. They are so flexible with adjusting my schedule for kid stuff. LOVE it!
