These Kids Mean Business! Funny Photos of Kids at "Work"

When I was a little girl, I loved to play “office.” I set up a desk in my pink and purple bedroom with the white eyelet curtains and made important business transactions.

Deals were recorded in my Holly Hobbie notepad.

Valuable accounts were acquired with Monopoly money.

My Fisher-Price telephone rang off the hook … until it was time for my afternoon snack.

I was a little Donald Trump in the making. Except for the combover. (I was more a side ponytail kind of gal.)

These kids loving playing business too — or at least dressing like it! So in honor of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, we’ve rounded up some of the hardest working tots on this side of Wall Street. Who knows? You might just spot the next Oprah Winfrey or Bill Gates. (I’ll bet they played office when they were kids, too.)
