Why do kids pick the absolute WORST times to want to talk to their parents?
Whether it’s a major spaceship LEGO® creation they’ve built, or they’ve finally learned how to pop a wheelie on their bike, when your child is doing something that they think is awesome, chances are that they want you to see it. RIGHT NOW. Doesn’t matter what you’re doing, that phone conversation can WAIT!
