Child Labor Laws?

My husband and I own a vet clinic for those who don't already know.  And we bring Paisley with us to work everyday.  My office is set up for her as a play room, so it hardly looks professional at all.  I have alphabet floor mats, stuffed animals, a little bed for her, diapers, and toys galore.  And then shoved in "my corner", I have all of our important tax papers, payroll stuff, etc.  Seems fair enough.

This has been an amazing situation.  We've gotten to both spend lots of time with our little girl as she's gotten bigger and her love for animals has just blossomed.  Currently we have a stray cat that we found in a dumpster that she adores.  He lets her love on him like crazy, carry him around, and squeeze him.  Perfect friendship.

Hanging out with one of her best friends (also one of our employees)

Playing in her stray kitty's cage
Our clients also love seeing her.  They've gotten to watch her grow up and it's so sweet how many of them will schedule appointments based on when she'll be in the clinic.  But now it's even more fun because she's starting to act like she needs to greet them when they come in.  She'll head to the front of the clinic when the door dings.  And she loves waving and saying "hello".  Plus, she adores ALL animals.   We truly are blessed!


  1. This is SO cute! She's like a mini employee or the mascot of the clinic hahahaha Watch out, she might demand to be put on the payroll in a few years :)

  2. Love it! I grew up in my family's restaurant... helping out and hanging out! And now, I run the place! Paisley is so lucky that she gets to spend time seeing what her parents do!

  3. This is precious! Amazing that you get to spend so much time with her, and I love that she loves all animals!! (we have 3 indoor pets)

  4. I haven't commented in a while but I'm still here and just wanted to say hi :) It looks like Paisley has a blast with you guys at work. She is such a little doll baby. I'm guessing your customers don't mind seeing her there with you at all.

  5. Haha, this is so cute!! I love it!

  6. You DO have the best situation! I'm so jealous! :) Pretty sure if you were near us, we'd schedule our dog appointments to see that precious little toddler too!

  7. This is just too sweet. Such a perfect set up! I know many parents can only dream of this, so I love that you are actually DOING it and loving it:)!
