“Be honest with your kids. Sometimes I’m going to miss some things, but it’s not because I don’t care about what you are doing it’s because my job (as flexible as it is) is important and holds requirements. Jobs are not optional. They too will experience that one day. We can’t honestly “flexibility” all the time.
