His wife left him with the children for just two days. It was enough for him to appreciate how much effort she must put into taking care of them!

My dear,

What did I do? To drown out the noise, I turned up the volume on the TV.

I answered you angrily: “I was at work all day so that you could stay at home and play with the kids.”
