The other day I was doing my tax returns, calculating some figures while Fabian was eating his dinner, thinking I was working. After a while he said:
“Wow, mum! I though that the only thing you were doing at your job, was sitting in meetings and deciding things. But you are calculating stuff too.”
It was clear that he was very impressed. So, it hurt some when I had to admit to him, that my job is mostly sitting in meeting, deciding things, not making too many (any) calculations, not even of the easier kind.
I was back to a very average mother, not the supersmart worth admiring. Oh, well.
