I read this post a couple of months ago and I have read it many times since.
Kate's words have captured some of my feelings about life since I began this whole other world that is mothering. As Max approaches his third birthday and with the knowledge that soon I'll be mother to three children I take solace in knowing I'm not the only person who has these feelings.
And now (while Max 'dries' my hair with his Mobilo hairdryer) it is time to resurface, go and wake Adelaide, have lunch together, clear the lounge room floor so the expected student doctors can make their way to the lounge & find the child health records to visit the child health clinic this afternoon. On second thoughts the student doctors are coming to learn about children & families so I'll leave that Mobilo all over the floor & they can fight there way through like I do.
