Tag-a-long and Menu

Here's a question I've been debating...is it ok to bring your child to work with you if you're in a pinch? Sunday I was showing houses and had an open house to do and Nick had a soccer game in Woodford County. I just packed miss Bailey up and she tagged along to the house hunting with my client and I. Luckily, my client didn't mind one bit and she had her two little boys with her, so the kids pretty much kept each other entertained. But I'm not sure if this makes me less professional or not? I guess it all depends on who the client/boss is in the situation, but I was just wondering what you all think! My client has two sons and the youngest will be 3 in June, and Bailey and him were so cute together!! He kept holding her hand and sharing his little toys with her, it was so sweet!! And Bailey was an angel! I was really nervous because we met Kim at 11:00 and went to look at 3 houses. Bailey is a very routine kind of baby. She takes her first nap at about 10:30 in the morning and then eats lunch about 12:00. Well, yesterday she missed her nap and lunch. But she never got fussy! Nick met me at my open house right as it was starting at 1:00 and picked her up. The plan was to feed her a late lunch and then nap, but she was too tired! He did get her to eat a little bit, but she just wanted to sleep! Menu: Saturday - Bailey and I had meatloaf, mashed potatoes and peas. Nick had pork chops instead of meat loaf. Sunday - Grilled sirloin steaks and baked potatoes. Monday - Breakfast! Buttermilk waffles, bacon and fruit. Tuesday - Beef tacos and rice. Wednesday - Grilled chicken and fingerling potatoes with roasted garlic and oregano vinaigrette and a salad. Thursday - Buffalo chicken calzones Friday - Rehearsal dinner for Brooke's wedding! Saturday - Wedding! Ok, so I was almost embarrassed to include my menu this week...we have a side dish dilemma, we always eat potatoes!!! I need some ideas for less starchy side dishes...anyone?!

It sounds like your client didn't mind one bit, so I'd say taking Bailey with you was just fine. In your case, I would think you could make the call on a client by client basis.

I have tons of recipes for sides. I've posted some of them from time to time on my blog (just look under recipes). One of our favorites are the oven roasted veggies.

We eat salad almost every night- now it is the iceburg not as healthy for you salad but we love potatoes too and that makes me feel better!

My opinion- and bear in mind that I have no children and have very little tolerance for them - is that they shouldn't be in a work place...I work on the phone all day, and once in a while, we have people bringing their kids in and they let them run around and scream while I'm on the phone, which to the person on the other line sounds like I work at Disney World...pretty embarrassing...
