It’s on a Saturday night when the profoundest divisions in my family are clearest. My wife and my 9 year old son versus my 11 year old daughter. I shuttle between them trying to keep the peace, while they are embattled in their respective encampments.
One in the kitchen, watching ‘How do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?’ and the others in the living room, watching the auditions on X-Factor. Pure genius TV, both of them, but they force my family apart…at least for an hour!
Come on Aoife!
