In the silence of motherhood

“As a new mother, I often shook my head in bewilderment that my own mother did this with twins, already with a small child. Not that she ever once spoke of the circus at dinner time or the juggling act each morning; it only popped into my head years later. There’s a lot we don’t realise until later because, through all the years of our adolescence, our mother’s have learned to “keep mum” on things for our benefit, silencing their fears and sometimes their dreams.”
