My wife called to say she was going to pick up dinner (woo hoo!) and she sounded pretty frustrated. She had told the kids, moments before, that she was running away because of the way they were behaving to a variety of reactions:
My three year old became excited about picking out a new mom.
My seven year old said, "Oh. Well, if I don't see you before you leave, bye."
My five year old went into his room to cry.
She didn't run away.
