(at mom’s stay and play this morning)
Other Mother: Is she starting kindergarten next year?
Me: No, the year after.
Other Mother: So you have another year with her at home?
Other Mother: (scrunchie face) Ugh.
Me: Actually, I’m quite looking forward to one more year with her at home.
Really? Really!??! Do people want to get rid of their own kids badly enough that the thought of me staying home with my child induces an “Ugh” response??? Really?
