Last week I decided that Kaya has been recently deprived of Mommy time. So, I picked her up from school early and told her that I was taking her, and only her, out for ice cream for some special Mommy and Kaya time. She liked this idea a lot, until we got to the car. “What about Laney?” she asked. I explained that Laney was not invited because this time was just for her so I wouldn’t be distracted by Laney. “But I want Laney to come.” I again tried to explain the purpose of the ice cream trip. She was having none of it and started to get visibly upset. So Laney came with us.
