Not counting the optional personal hygiene perk one receives as part of being a home based worker, I LOVE that I can take a 10 minute break in the afternoon to pick my tween up from the bus stop after school. It gives us time to have meaningful conversations like this:
Me: Hey! How was school?
Me: What did you learn today?
Me: Did you change your mind on me participating in the “Shadow your adolescent” program on Friday?
Her: Mom, not to be mean, but only the nerds bring their parents to school.
Her: Did dad get tickets to the world series?
Me: No, they sold out.
Her: Mr. Osborne was trying all day to get tickets. One for him, one for his dad, and two to sell for $5,000 so he can pay down his debt.
Guess that solves the mystery on why she didn’t learn anything today.
