Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day (part 2)

I had my special day with Dad. Before our day together I had to get permission from my school and I had to write a letter to my teacher and tell her how I would spend my day. Dad helped me write my letter and we told my teacher that I would spend the day at his office watching Dad do his job. I would also spend some time with his Research Assistant and his Legal Secretary. My teacher approved my day and gave me a paper I had to fill-out with some questions about the day.

I always eat breakfast with Dad but it was strange to see the bus leave without me as I got into Dad's car to go to work. I had visited Dad's office many times and I knew all of the people who worked with him. He has a Research Assistant named Kathy and a Legal Secretary named Bob. They are always busy working on different cases or talking to clients.

As soon as we walked into the office the phones started ringing, Kathy and Bob were already busy with work. I spent the morning with Dad, first we looked at his phone messages that Bob gave him to see if he needed to return any calls or if he had any urgent business. Dad didn't have any calls to return from the messages but he had a few client calls for the morning. Before the calls he and Kathy went through the files and reviewed the cases. I didn't get to listen to the case information so I had to sit in the lobby because it's all secret stuff. When Dad made the call he told the client that I was there for my special day and asked if I could sit-in on the call. I can't say much about it but it was someone writing a will incase something happened to them their kids would get their stuff. Dad had already met with these clients before but they had a few questions after meeting with the rest of the family.

Kathy spent a little time with me and showed me the legal books in the office and helped me read a case. The wording was kinda hard but after the legal stuff it's more like a story so I liked it. Kathy said sometimes she needs to find out how a case was handled in the past to decide how they should do things now.

I liked my special day and I think Dad has a really interesting job. Most of the time Dad talks to people about what's going on in their lives and helps them make decisions that might mean legal stuff.

I had to fill out my paper for school which asked questions about how I spent my day, who I spent it with and what I learned. Dad helped me write some of it and I showed it to my mom when I got home. It was a fun day and I couldn't wait to give my report at school.
