You should play a really loud game with them and buy them coke and sugar from the beverage cart. It will be a tough, but entertaining 1.5 hours for you, but a miserable night for the parents. Should teach-it-forward.

It's exhausting... Thoughts?

I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?

Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?
