While I was working Alyssa (my oldest daughter) text me from school saying that she was hungry. “OK?” I thought. I respond “I’m working”. She then proceeds to whine *yes, I could hear the whine through the text* about how she had been up since 6:00am, forgot her lunch, it was now 4:00pm and she wouldn’t be done with practice until 7:30pm and she was *starving*.
