Overheard from the back seat

C: "A, who are you talking to on the phone?"

A: "Your teacher."

C: "Why are you talking to my teacher?"

A: "I'm telling her that you can't go to school."

C: "What? But I want to go to school!"

A: (Holding up a finger) "Shhh. Hello? C's teacher? Yeah, hi. C can't come to school today. Uh huh. Yeah. Because I want to play with him. Okay, bye."

C: "Mommy! Mommy! I want to go to school. A, call them back and tell them I WANT to go to school."

Mommy: "C, she doesn't actually have a working phone. It's a pretend one. And she doesn't know your teacher's number. Calm down."

C: " Oh, right. A, were you just pretending?"

A: "Yes silly. My phone is out of juice."
