We can all laugh, rejoice and smile at the Pass the Piper.  At how wonderful it is to be inclusive and support me, mothers or working parents.

The reality is, I probably got lucky with the timing of Piper’s development.  She was happy to co-operate at the time.  Now, a month or so later, she is a different child and taking her out is much harder.

I went to a Brighton SWTC  recently and just couldn’t stay for the duration. And I just found it difficult to participate in any way.  So I left early. Ah well, I’m not disappointed, glad I showed up.

Rather than hide away, I believe in showing up, if I feel able to do so.  My previous self would not have done that.

I also think it’s important to share the reality, it’s not always happy smiles try to manage all the things in life.
