Workin' Like a Dog

For almost a year and a half now, I've done my work at our dining room table.  We don't have an office, so I keep a neat stack of papers on top of the china buffet and I pack up the laptop at the end of each day when we're ready to eat dinner.  Voila, back to a dining room :)

Sure, it would be nice to have an area dedicated to computer and work space, but we get by.

And yet my 16 month old has cozied himself into a corner office, complete with a door and endless filing space.  This is where he spends about 1/3 of his day now.

A word of warning: you better knock if you want to bother him while he's busy at work.  He doesn't like to be interrupted with trivial matters.

A hard day's work can include anything from rearranging snack boxes, emptying snacks all over the floor and stomping on them, opening granola bars and mashing them into the hinges of the "office" door...


...or even a trip down the hall to the dishwasher.  Gotta get those utensils in order for the big wash.

Some days, he's tied up for hours, dealing with important calls on the calculator.  

And the number one rule of employee efficiency around here is "Comfort First."  Pants are obviously optional.

  1. Haha - this is too cute! John loves to play in our kitchen drawers... but has not figured out how to get into the granola bars... yet. That would be the ultimate jackpot!

  2. LOL! Niall is so adorable. I especially love those important calls on the calculator :)When Nate discovered the joys of the kitchen it was a whole new world! A messy, messy world.
