Have you ever noticed that traffic lights seem to be tuned in to your child’s needs? It’s eerie really, the way the lights do exactly the opposite of what I and my child need them to, nearly every trip between home and daycare.
When your child needs to go to the bathroom and you know there’s a McDonald’s you can sneak into, three intersections away; that’s when you hit three red lights. Or when your kid wants a toy that fell on the floor and you tell them you’ll grab it as soon as you get a red; that’s when you get green lights the rest of the drive to daycare.
It’s like the lights are conspiring against you.
