You may not believe in me, but I believe in you.
We believe the children are big enough to leave at home, on their own, if it is necessary to leave the house for a brief period of time. However, I do not believe I am big enough to leave them at home on their own.
It was agreed that it would be all right to have a run while they read books, did homework, had screen time, whatever. So I did. And I could not think, not for a moment. My brain was unable a jumble of sounds, pictures and haphazard ideas. The worst of which involved someone breaking into the house while I was out.
Everything was quiet and calm when I returned. The girl was still reading on the couch where I had left her, and the boy I found at the dining room table, treating himself to a third slice a bread slathered in ketchup and mustard.
