Do you go to every home game?PAR0616COVER-1

AC: Ninety-five percent of them. Riley used to come with me. Now I leave her home more often because it’s important to keep the kids on a schedule. It gets late on game nights. So your date night is getting to watch him play?


SC: It’s not a date night. We’re in the same building, but it’s all eye contact from the stands to the court. And then we have the drive home.
Let’s talk about Riley. She became a celebrity last spring when she tagged along to a press conference and stole the show—waving at reporters, telling you to be quiet, disappearing under the dais. Did that happen organically, and were you surprised by the reaction?
SC: Yes and yes. I have to walk past the family waiting room to get to the interview room, and Riley wanted to hang out with me. She had that look, like she wasn’t going to take no for an answer. So I said, all right, come with me. She sat up there, and that’s when her personality shined bright. I tried my best to answer the questions even while feeling under the table and checking out of the corner of my eye—where is Riley? She’s got a great sense of humor. Now she’s the star of the family. If we go somewhere without her, the first question people ask us is, “Where’s Riley?”

Does she understand that she’s sort of famous?

AC: No, she has no idea.PAR0615CSTRY_2

SC: But she is definitely aware of people taking pictures of her.

AC: That breaks my heart a little as a parent. She’ll put her hand up and be like, “Mom, she’s trying to take a picture of me.” Then I give a look that says, “Put your phone down.”

You’re both active on social media—Instagram, Twitter. A lot of parents struggle to balance the public and the private. What are the family ground rules?

SC: We’ll just show each other a photo and ask, “Should I post this?” We know we’re in a different situation than most people, but we want to share stuff that’s meaningful and not have to be guarded. But there is a balance. We keep certain moments to ourselves, so it’s a memory just for us.
