Me: That was a really long school trip.

Her: Yes amma, six nights and five days.

Me: Did you miss us? Were you homesick?

Her: You know when I really missed you amma? It was when we had to pack our bags at the end of the trip. My idea of packing was to separate everything into two piles and then dump everything into the rucksack. That’s when I missed you. Really really missed you!

– Oh well, at least she did say that she missed me. Even if it was only for my top secret, super scientific, expert packing skills.
