I do not say to my daughter that I think there is chicken stock in the vegetable soup and chicken salt on the chips we ordered. She is eating them gratefully, but this is a small town. Too small for vegetarians.
I do not say to him how much are you reminded of your honeymoon with your ex on this trip.
I do not say please take the children for a walk, please make them shower and organise their meals and break up their fights. Because these are my children, not his. And he is already doing so much. I do not say, please, I just need some quiet time alone.
