I am still on maternity leave for another 1.5 weeks. tonight is a ceremony for some of the students I work with and I kind of want to go to see them. Families typically come and there have always been babies there in the past.

Anyway, if I were working I would probably not take DD but I am on leave so wanted to take her with me. She wont be the only baby there if I do.

Would you take her or not? Im also toying with not going myself because my boss keeps calling and emailing me with urgent stuff only I can do for some reason...but I want to go for my students...what would you do?

I've already taken my little guy into the school to see my students. I just made sure that they didn't touch him or anything. I think in some ways it is not a good thing if we try to keep them isolated from germs too much. Their immune systems need some practice. Go ahead and go if you really want to.

I'd go and I'd take the baby. I think bringing your baby makes it more clear to your boss that you're doing this as a personal thing and that you are on maternity leave and NOT WORKING (hint, hint boss man!) Plus, if it's a family event with other babies, etc, I say just go for it if you want to attend.

I would go for your students and take the baby. I agree with Amie - it sends a clear message that you are there for personal reasons...and not working.
Good luck!

I agree with the pp. Also, you'll get to share your DD with your students! I would be so excited to see the baby if I were them. :)
