I got a text message from MomC about 7:30 this morning. She said that she was not sure that she would be able to get Middle Son to put his pants on. It wasn't clear what, if anything, she expected me to do. It's not like I can put his pants on him via text message. So I didn't do anything. I went to work. Later in the day I texted and asked if she got him off to school. She said yes, but it took over an hour to get pants on him.
It reminded me of calls I used to get from MomC when she couldn't get Oldest Son out of bed in the morning for school. Only in that instance, I actually was able to get him to wake up and get out of bed over the phone.
