"Funniest thing happened today at school"... this is typically how I start my carpooling conversation with my husband upon pick up- that is unless I give him the "don't even talk to me look"!
Today as everyone was working away at this and that- one child called to me from across the room.
"Hey, how come you never go to work?"
I smiled and replied " I come to work everyday, I work here"
He laughed and said " All you do is go to school, my dad, mom and everyone else goes to work- but you just come here."
I try to explain..." Your dad, mom and everyone is good at something. That is why they choose their job. I am good with kids so I work as a teacher."
He turned from me and said "hmmm.. I think you should get a real job"
