Pick Your Battles

Text from daughter:

Daughter: Mummy I am hot and I am tired, can you come and pick me up please. I know super lazy.

Me: Where are you?

Silence.

So I try to ring her, no response, phone switched off. Meanwhile I get ready to go. Miss call off daughter as having a wee. Call daughter back, no answer, phone switched off.
