Me: Okay, Emmeline, it's 1:00. You've done a great job of entertaining yourself while I worked, so let's go have some lunch.
E: Great, Mommy! Did you bring a lunchbox?
Me: Um, no--I thought we could go out to lunch. To a restaurant.
E: To a restaurant? What about your boss?
Me: What do you mean, what about my boss?
E: You mean, he just lets you leave? To go eat? And he doesn't get mad?
Me: Err, yes--he just lets me go eat lunch.
E: Without asking?
E: Wow! I would so be in trouble if I tried that at school!
