During the school holidays it is always a bit tough on my son. He ends up spending quite a lot of time at my work place. Which is fine as I am able to bring him along anytime.
It really isn't so bad. We have an area where he can watch television and we bring his Xbox, Nintendo Wii and DVD's from home so that he can pass the time. He will make his way from the kitchen and then into the office where he will play computer games for a while. Plus he gets to eat whatever is in the fridge. And my boss has a dart board to play with. Also some Space Invader electronic game thing.
We also make him hot chocolates and toasted sandwiches on call.
Actually, thinking about it all, it is pretty good you know.
He had to come in with me for three days this week, six hours each day. I felt really guilty. I was concerned he may be bored. So I bought him a couple of DVD's to watch plus some computer game. Today I apologised a few times and he said it was fine, much better than school.
Tomorrow I am taking the day off and we are going bowling with a friend of his. Friday he will be at someone's house.
To tell you the truth, what with the two of us hanging around each other for four solid days , I am rather looking forward to going to work alone on Friday.
But things did get a bit tense in the car on the way home today.
You know how it is. Confined space, too much of each other's company.
Plus I had PMT.
It was tough.
