Banele is standing on his sister, Sihle, when mom arrives after a few days of staying at the guesthouse where she works. Mom greets all the children, shaking their hands. She goes to pick-up Banele who doesn’t make direct eye contact with her. She lifts him into the air. He looks around and stands on her chest. “You see me?” she asks. Mom then settles down on the couch, the other children around her. Dad enters the room and the family sits down, the tv playing in the background. Banele plays on mom’s lap. The family chats about various things before attention turns to what the siblings have been doing with Banele and what they have observed in him – his singing, laughing, curiosity.
