...I snuck out for a session yesterday while boy was at friends birthday party. asked parents if he could stay a bit longer. no problem ! win-win.
Ok, so that's gonna change when kids gets older? 'Cause I dread that whole birthday situation! My kids are small so I need to be there to ensure they don't: get beaten up/beat up other kids/drink from the toilet/face plant the cake/(strangle/decapitate/drown) some random pet/eat (superman/pearls/part of a dragons tail/the ear of another kid), and the list goes on and on. And all of this while being in an inferno of screaming and trying to avoid stuff being catapulted across the room. This of cause always happens on a saturday/sunday so it takes away a whole day of kiting and the wife don't give bonus points for attending these things.
There's this one kid who ALWAYS have sun and howling winds on his birthday. I f**king hate that kid!
So yeah, going to other kids birthdays definitely is my #1 stupid reason to miss a session.
