Latest TODAY column: "Papa ... byebyeseeyou"
Recently, Today Day Editor S Murali wrote about the struggles he has juggling work and spending time with his young children. We know the feeling too.
Every morning, when the wife and I leave for work, we leave a piece of ourselves behind. We look back longingly at our garishly painted front gate (done up with leftover orange paint), while waiting at the new upgraded lift in front of our flat.
Sometimes Isaac, who is two, is at the door, crying his guts out. Faith, who is five and autistic, is usually quieter, but even she has moments when she runs out the door wailing, obviously wanting to come along with us. Joy is too young to stand at the gate and cry, but I am sure she misses us from her cot too.
