Why the Tribal Era Was More Simple for Single Mums

Explaining a four-year old why we can’t live together with her father and his girlfriend… Boy, some of the mornings are more challenging than the regular!

You see, it is usually like that: there’s a man and a woman and they are together. When they separate, they meet other men and women and go on living with those other people. And it is quite established here for one man to live with one woman.

Pia has this tone as in I think you’re making this way too complicated mum.

I want one man to live with three girls: you, girlfriend and me.

And what do I say next apart from patting her knee and going like, now that’s something that’s not ever happening sweetie, and trying not to grin?
