    Everyday you're hustlin'.

    1. When the school performance ends and you have to go back to the office.

    No cookies and punch for you.

    2. When you're included on the email chain about that Wednesday morning play group.

    3. When you're *not* included on the email chain about that Wednesday morning play group.

    I's nice to be invited.

    4. When you're trying to hear if your kid is still crying after you've left without starting the whole thing over again.
