This blog contains musings and stories from my life concerning motherhood. Nothing in my life so far has brought such a dizzying simultaneous experience of the extraordinary and the utterly ordinary, of joy and heartache, fulfilment and frustration, as this remarkable task of being a mother. As we endeavour to be what Winnicott outlined as a “good enough mother “, we are also negotiating our own changing identities. We are holding our child and trying to hold a space, or at least a discernible shape, in our life for ourselves. This blog is all about that, and wants to register the depth and richness of the emotional life of being a mum. Welcome!
