Chronic fatigue

Soon I came home from a rude awakening. And so I squeaked to the supermarket in sweatpants and unwashed hair. And chronic fatigue turned out to be something you get as a gift with motherhood.

“I patched myself up and tried to be the perfect mama”

One day I went to lunch on a terrace with two friends and Moos. I was dead tired, but I’d patched myself up and tried to be the perfect mama. It went reasonably well until Moos decided to scream uncontrollably throughout the terrace. Something clicked in my head and I cried out: ‘I’m just not a primeval mother!’
