It's 'take our kids to work (from home) day'

For working parents, every day is take your kids to work day, for now.

April 23, 2020, 11:01 AM

Remember when "take your kids to work day" came just once a year?

Now every parent who is working from home gets to take their kids to work. Every single day.

It's frustrating. It's exhausting. It's also -- at times -- hilarious. Remember the dad whose kids crashed his live TV interview a couple of years back? That's pretty much all parents right now.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is the fourth Thursday in April -- or, in the age of the novel coronavirus, every day.

Today we're rounding up the funniest, cutest and most inspiring photos of you and your kids as we work and educate and play and love at home, together.

From teachers who are leading the charge on virtual learning for all of us:

April 23 is #TakeOurDaughtersandSonstoWorkDay 😂 I’ve got that taken care of for today and the next month! I’ve had this day on my calendar forever because my 2nd grader was super excited to come to my 2nd grade classroom this year. Instead she’s helping run my virtual classroom pic.twitter.com/mecbLDM7la
