None of my kids are emergencies. I had nine months to prepare for each of them to arrive, and even today I know where they are and what they're doing at most times. There's nothing urgent about that.A *bleeding* kid is an emergency. A screaming kid is sometimes an emergency (sometimes it's just Drama). Kid falls out of bed and bangs the nightstand on the way down, hell yes I'm bailing on raid. Kid gets out of bed because he wants a ten millionth glass of water? Kid can wait two minutes until the boss is dead and my 60-second AFK will not disrupt the group.Note the placement of the kid when I'm raiding: bed. I'm not raiding when the kid needs dinner, homework help or other expected attention. I planned around that. Thus, it's not an emergency.
