Francesca: Hey, don’t we have a meeting at 1:30?
Jorge: We do. Sorry I’m late. I popped over to see how my kids are doing in the new on-site daycare.
Francesca: I didn’t even know we had an on-site daycare.
Jorge: It’s something new the company is offering to working parents. It’s a big perk and it’s great not having to drop off and pick up my kids from a separate daycare every day.
Francesca: That’s nice.
Jorge: It’s really helped with the transition back to work from maternity and paternity leave. Finding the right childcare was turning out to be a big problem.
Francesca: We really missed you when you were away.
Jorge: Thanks. I’m also less distracted. I have peace of mind knowing the kids are here in the same building and I can check on them anytime. It’s better for productivity.
Francesca: That’s good. Now should we get started with our meeting?
Jorge: Okay, but let’s keep it short. I want to check on the kids again in about 10 minutes.
Francesca: How many times have you checked on them already?
Jorge: Four times.
Francesca: Just today?
Jorge: Just in the past hour.
