Math lesson: “Mom’s money is Mom’s money and Daddy’s money is Mom’s money.”
Boy: Counting, recounting the money he earned folding laundry this month. Saving for a tablet. “$7.50. I have a long way to go to get to $200.”
Mom bites lip, looks up at ceiling. He doesn’t know she borrowed the $120 he made as a child study in a psychology program. Last year.
Daddy: “Daddy’s sad because he lost his wallet.”
Boy: “Oh, that means will be poor now.”
