What they don’t tell you…..
When I became a mother I knew that I’d always be being interrupted and invaded whilst on the toilet. I’d seen it happen to my mother.
And, I knew that there would be times when I would be pinned to the couch by children ill and sad and needing to be held. It was to be expected.
But what I didn’t know-
And what nobody told me-
Was that in the shower the sounds of the water, the pipes and the steam would mingle to mimic the muffled noise of a baby crying two rooms away.
So that you could never, really ever, switch off.
