A friend in the office tell me this story:
She was telling her 3 years daughter that she will be on vacation for 1 week with her friends. A ladies only vacation with no children and happy. Her daugther started to cry and whine asking her not to go. She was moved and just thinking about cancelling her vacation.
Then her husband said to her daughter, “You know what? We will go swimming when mommy is not home.”
All of sudden, the crying and whining stopped. Her daughter with a full smile in her face tell my friend that she can go on vacation – the sooner the better.
