Dialogue/Story

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.
