To all the children out there: Welcome to your first taste of the Real World.

It's the one day of the year where you're encouraged to keep your kids home from school and put them to work: It's Take Your Kid to Work Day (which explains why there are more kids than usual running around your office).

For the first time in their short lives, young kids are introduced to the daily grind. They get to miss a day of school in exchange for the treat of seeing what mommy and daddy do all day at work. One boss's nightmare is another kid's dream.

Are you taking part in this unofficial holiday? Did you pack a teeny tiny briefcase for your mini-me, or did you send them off to school like any other day?

Take our poll and leave us a comment sharing your craziest Take Your Kid to Work Day memory.
