Kid 1: I have a concert late (7:30, 3hours away) on Sunday.
Kid 2: Mom, can we go?
Mom: No it’s too far. We’d get back too late because I have work Monday.
Kid 2: dad, can we go?
Dad: no because you have school on monday. If it were Sat. or at least earlier on Sun. we’d try.
Mom: it’s 7 so my parental shift is over. C-ya next time, kid 2.
Mom (on Facebook for all to see) : yay for Skype and iPhone facetime! I watched the show. Mom (internal monologue): I’m such a good mama.
Kid 2 (at home, uninvited): Say what?
