Had a fun time with Liz today- which was “Take your Daughter to Work Day”. I am not sure if this is a National or International occasion but here Girls in Grade 9 are given the opportunity to spend the day at a parents work. I think this is meant to broaden young women’s thinking about choices and careers.
I have had a pretty busy month- my sites were hacked and I haven’t fully recovered from that… that was followed by a nasty hard drive crash and I have been scrambling this month to catch up- so I have been spending more time than usual on my PC– which has REALLY aggravated my neck and suffering from migraines all week. BLECH.
Anyway- I was actually pretty excited to spend the day with my daughter and teach her some of the things I have learned. She has had a blog set up for years but not done much with it so I thought today would be a good way to jumpstart her blog.
I ugraded her database so I could install latest version of WordPress… then she picked out a new theme. Also had her take a pic of herself to put up on her “about me” page and write a few paragraphs about herself. I thought this was a good exercise for a variety of reasons. I think it bolsters your self esteem to see in black in white what your life looks likes who you are and what you like to do. Many times we are not aware of our own skills and strengths.
By the end of the day I was pleased with what she accomplished although i think she has a new respect for me and work I do!
