The kids and I have had some interesting discussions over what constitutes needing to phone Mummy in the middle of thesis juries. This is what we came up with:

  • Wondering if you can watch TV is not an emergency.
  • Telling me that your stomach hurts everytime you get up and can you watch TV is not an emergency.
  • And finally, wondering if Abel should be playing Nintendo as he isn’t supposed to and wondering if you can have some banana bread and since we’re talking anyway, would it be ok if you watched TV is really and truly not an emergency.
