A mother born in vain
Once you've had it, there's no looking back. In the words of Gemma Hayes' song, Oliver, "I look the same, but I'm a little different now" I'm a mother. Not just a wife. Only, I am...just a wife.
There's no, "make the most of the two of you" there's no "Oh, well, it means we get another holiday"...there's no comfort in "well, you can have one of mine, I need a break" or "you're still young, you've got time" Or "it will happen when the time is right"....The time was right 16 months ago. The time is right NOW. I am a mother. I need to be a mother again. We were three. We were Team Townend. Two just isn't enough any more. We were three. We should still be three. There should not be wings on my baby's back.
