She’s Just a Mother

She’d caught herself saying it a few times. “Oh me? I’m just at home.”

And when she went back to work she was just working part-time.

She’d heard the phrase used by others, the insult; they’d let themselves go, they looked a bit “mumsy”.

She knew the uncoolest jeans on the block were the “mum’s” jeans.

“Oh I’d go brain dead if I had to stay with the kids all day.”

 Is that what she was? Brain dead.

The job of mother was not one to be proud of.  Its images were rarely sexy.

And when her children appeared ungrateful or disinterested she lost heart.

Was it for nothing?

A reminder that at the end of the day, you couldn’t be more important. No-one is just a mother.
