Happy Holidays! What We're Celebrating

happy holidays

Sure, work is serious business. But sometimes you have to celebrate the small stuff.

And as another holiday season comes to a close, we'd like to send a shoutout to the many people and things we're grateful for:


They can dry tears with one hand, balance a spreadsheet with the other, and do it all without dropping a single cupcake from the platter of two dozen they whipped up for the bake sale they just heard about...this morning.


How cool are dads? Two words: Randall Pearson. This is Us. Swoon.


Research says friendships make us work better. We could have told you that. But it's always nice to have the backup data.


You don't have to be a child care company to know that no matter what kind of deadline you're under, you cannot watch a laughing baby without cracking a smile. Seriously...we dare you.


You just never know when they're going to show up.


In 2017, our offices are going to the dogs, in the best possible way.


Rumor has it that cat videos support productivity. And c'mon; they're the reason the internet exists.


We are totally kidding. And this never stops being funny (or true).

A final note! Our heartfelt holiday greetings to all of our clients, colleagues, and families, you give us so much to celebrate. It wouldn't be the same without you.

Happy Holidays!
