A couple of days ago my brother in law asked me teasingly, “So, what’s it like being a single mother?” “Hard work!” I replied. The wife is in India with a friend, leaving me with the kids. I’ve done it before of course, but this is the first time since baby Tameem arrived. I’ve got a seven-and-a-half year old, a six year old, and a one year old. I love them to death, and I’m enjoing the bonding expereince, but thank God I’m not a mother! It’s hard work you know!
