“I need to poo,” Benny enters the bathroom while I’m in the shower. I hear him sigh loudly as he sits on the toilet.
I just wanted to take a shower by myself and be quiet for five minutes, but I can’t tell him to wait.
Benny’s pensive while taking a poo. He says: “I really like spending time like this, just the two of us.”
Immediately I feel guilty for not having enough time for each of my children. Until he adds, more cheerfully: “But I like doing arts and crafts with Dada more.”
At least I’m good enough for him to hang out in the bathroom with me.
