This evening as we were sitting and chatting, i brought up the topic of school. I asked Sid if he would try not to cry tomorrow when i dropped him off. “I have some work to do which i will finish and then I can come and pick you up” I said. “Let me go with you please” he said.
“Sorry baby, that is not an option.”
“OK then i will just stay at home. You take Nish to school and go finish your work. I will wait at home for you”
“What will you do at home? Nish will be riding his bike, playing in the sandpit, painting and singing in class. WHat will you do all alone?”
“I will be fine. I can stay at home and play with my jai jai bappa” (jai jai bappa is sid’s version of God. He loves sitting by the altar and playing with all the silver stuff)
I did not really have a response to that one so i let it drop!
