Just picked up Supermangirl (10:15 PM) from a "late night" trip courtesy of her day camp.
And Wonderwoman has to be at day camp tomorrow morning at 7:20 to leave for her overnight trip. She will be returning on Thursday at midnight. Of course there is no bus service at those times, so the parents must drop off and pick up their kids.
I always wonder if the camp administrators that schedule these trips ever stop to think just how much they're inconveniencing parents by requiring these early drop offs and way-too-late pickups. For me, it's a matter of leaving one daughter home alone sleeping while I go pick up the other one (I do it, but it makes me nervous). For other families, it can mean dragging babies or toddlers out of the house late at night, or shlepping out at midnight when you have to be up at 5:00 the next morning.
And of course, you can't complain about it, because the answer is always, "Oh, but the children have so much fun! You don't want to take that away from your daughter, do you?" Yeah, lady, I'm a mean old ogre who cares about myself more than I care about my kid. Thanks for the guilt trip.
