My youngest son spent half the day at the office with me after my wife dropped him off on her way to a meeting today. Fortunately, my office is fairly tolerant of children around the place and as long as everyone’s getting their work done, no one says a thing.
It’s always a bit distracting, albeit entertaining, to have a child accompany one through the normally unspectacular routines of the work day. For example, waiting for the evening train is no longer a few moments of relaxation – or boredom, depending on one’s mood – when a 10-year old is involved.
With my son it’s a time to take pictures. And take more pictures. And take even more pictures with dad’s camera. Here is one of his many shots of me standing on the platform, with a train in the background zooming toward us.
