The view from the rooftop restaurant was breathtaking, but just like those lights from the surrounding buildings, my mind was scattered all over the place.

‘Welcome to motherhood, darling.’ Ma’s grating voice rattled inside my head.

    • Iain, thank you for reading and commenting. It feels nice when parents say that because being a non-parent (at least, not to human children) it does feel a bit of a challenge to write about parents. Hence, it feels awesome when parents are actually able to relate to such write ups. 🙂
