“Can We Be Done?”

"Can we be done?"
"Can we be done now?"
"What are you talking about?"
"Can we be done being parents."
"Why not? Can’t we send them to college?"
"Why not?"
"Boarding school?"
"Boarding school! Will they take the little one, too?"
"We can tell ’em Asher’s a first grader."
"He is pretty smart."

    Heh. There was an age when the best families sent their children away to boarding school — you’d only have to wait another three years. Can you imagine?

    Um. Would you hold it against me if I said yes, I can imagine? But no, I couldn’t ever really do that.

    Tasha just watched the first Harry Potter movie. I had to explain to her that the kids lived at the school and didn’t get to go home, even for the weekends. She’s horrified. I think it might be my new favorite threat: “Be good, or I’ll send you to boarding school!” Couldn’t cost much more than what we’re paying now.
