Mary: Rita, I’m really sorry, but I’m having childcare problems.

Rita: What’s going on?

Mary: Well, my mother used to take care of my son during the day.

But she got sick, and ...

Rita: Oh, I’m sorry to hear that.

Mary: Thank you. I think she’s going to be fine.

Rita: Oh, that’s good.

Mary: So now my husband and I take turns driving our son to a day care center in the morning.

Rita: Mary, I’m really sorry that you’re having these problems.

It must be very difficult for you.

Mary: Yes, it has been difficult.

Rita: How long will things be like this, do you think?

Mary: Well, my mother is feeling much better now.

But she’ll need at least another month of rest.

Rita: Well, that’s not too long.

Mary: I’m glad you think so, but I’m worried about what other people think.

Rita: Oh, don’t worry about that.

I’ll explain the situation to them.

I’m sure they’ll understand.

Mary: I’d like to start making the time up during my lunch break.

Rita: That sounds fair to me.

Mary: Thanks, Rita!
