A: This question address how to construe ("construction" of) an agreement. Although we here cannot see the agreement, we imagine it provides for both contingencies: either the agreement terminates on September 21st, or at any other time presumably sooner than September 21st.

We also do not get to the question of how to enforce a breach of the agreement. Informal agreements regarding children are not enforceable in New York.
