If your parents go on a real grown-up date while you get to play with grandparents, except instead of playing you act really terrible, and also have naughty notes from school, and also get up out of bed eight thousand times for fake reasons just to avoid going to bed…
Then you get to wake up as many minutes early as you were late to bed, do all your homework again just for good measure, and then write apology letters to your teachers and grandparents.
And if you are a boy, you have to dress up like a gentleman.
And if you are a girl, you are grounded from dresses and hair bows.
And no, you do not get to use the spiderman or frozen pencils.
And yes, your cool backpacks did disappear and you have ugly ones now.
And count by five’s while you are at it.
