So it was a normal Monday morning. There was the normal rush for getting to school on time, pack the lunch boxes, get the breakfast done etc. We were well within time when I asked Son to change into the uniform.
Me: Come on S, let’s get ready, where’s your uniform?
S: It’s okay, we have time. Please help me with the clothes.
Me: a bit flustered, … Okay come on hurry up now!
S: Okay okay don’t get angry.
Me: more flustered – Am not angry!
S: Yes you are. You are always angry.
Me: (Angry but hiding it.) Am not angry, maybe I am. That’s my thing – being angry! Like your thing is to watch the iPad all the time and dad’s thing is to….. (wondering what to mention here)
S: (in a very quiet voice) Dad’s thing is to calm you down.
