There’s a mini baby boom happening at my company right now. My counterpart in London is due any second and a wonderful and talented member of my global team in New York is due in September. I threw a baby shower for her this afternoon and I learned two things: 1) I am not a good person to throw a baby shower because (like most guys) I don’t have much experience with them and I didn’t really know what I was supposed to do and 2) my love for cake is never-ending.
One of the main reasons I took my amazing job, a.k.a. The Best Job in the World, is because it’s the most family-friendly workplace I’ve ever had the privilege to work. I can’t imagine another company where the global CEO and CFO (among others) would take the time from their busy schedules to attend an office baby shower and eat cake with us. All working moms (and dads) should be so lucky to have bosses like them.
