He is like glued to me.
Wherever I go, whatever I do, whenever...
It's not like he demands to go with me when I want to do some errands. Oh, I have no objection to let him come with me to those places where I go.
Instead, it's on those times when I have deadlines to finish, work to do, reports to make, WHEN I CANNOT MOVE AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER that he always puts himself around me, calling me, asking for my attention, calling me, calling me, calling me...
"Mama, look here!"
"Mama, hold this!"
"Mama, watch me do this!"
"Mama, mama, mama, mama!"
And HIS DAD is just a few meters away DOING NOTHING!
Right now, above my pressured feelings and rushed adrenalin, I'm taking a deeeeeep breath, holding his face between my hands, looking directly at his eyes, forcing the sweetest smile I have, and hearing myself saying, "tell me again about Monster Lochness?"
He is getting older fast and I cannot waste time by looking away.
