Luke was playing with a little girl at the playground and I went over to check on him.
“Are you guys having fun?” I asked.
“Yeah, Mom,” Luke said.
I looked over at his new friend, whose pretty face was framed by long, blond waves.
“Hello, what’s your name?” I asked.
“My mom says my dad’s a liar,” she said matter-of-factly.
It was tempting to dig for more info but instead I turned to sit on a nearby bench without asking anymore questions. I hope one day another mom will return the favor when my kids say something lessthanperfect about me (if they haven’t already).
