In celebration of National Family Day, I am (actually everyone at Graco is) leaving early today! We just got an e-mail from our Human Resources department saying:
“Enjoy this bit of extra time with your family-take a walk in the cool of the evening…play a board game…just sit down to a dinner TOGETHER!!”
National Family Day encourages everyone to sit down together at dinner and connect with each other. If your house is like mine, it’s usually chaos, but we work hard to try and sit down together almost every night. We’ve had some of the most entertaining and interesting conversations that simply start with “How was your day?” Jagger now asks me how my day was which I think is just so cute.
Well for once, I’m actually going to take advantage of HR’s generous offer and surprise my husband by coming home early. It’s great to work for such a family-friendly company that recognizes the importance of family-time. Now if I only knew what to cook for dinner…
