I know a few school friends whose parents are divorced. Most of them have to spend time with both parents. That means; they have a lot of travelling to do during the week.
One of my very good girl friend is doing just that. She comes to school with huge bags. She has forgotten to bring her school work a few times already. She told me that not only she has to spend time with her mom and dad, but also with her two sets of grand parents. So, she has to bring along bags of her stuff from one place to another. She said that she is like a modern nomads (without the camels, of course). That is why at times; she can’t remember when and what she left where and when she needs to go where with what and when to do what, where. Aiyoh! Now, I know why she forgets to bring her homework at times.
A boy I know said to me one day, “Aiyoh! It is getting complicated now...”. His dad has recently gotten married and now his wife has given birth to a baby. So, not only he has a new step mother, he now has a brand new step kid brother. His mom has also gotten married and his new step father already has a few children. So, not only he now has a new step dad, he also has some instant step siblings. I know it was not supposed to be a funny, but, when he was describing all that to me, it sounded so very funny. I pity him because he has to spend times with both families and has to keep track of who is who.... he he. Quite a few times already he got into class (in the morning) late and looking very stressed out.
One girl friend of mind, she only visits her mom on saturdays. But, she doesn’t really like to do it because she prefers to spend saturdays doing nothing. So, her mom has to bribe her by buying stuffs for her, which is kind of good, bad, may be good, may be bad... I don’t know!
I am just happy, I don’t have to be a MPV nomad because I don’t really like to lug my stuff around... he he. Not that we have a MPV anyway.
