Bed Time

This evening, as usual, Henry waited till bed time to start packing his school bag. As I patiently watched him pack, I would intermittently bark at him so he didn’t relax and think his time wasting was working. I noticed there were bits of pencil shavings in his pencil case. I asked why as he …

I Can’t Breathe
