Should going away without the children feel this good?
Today I have gone to the loo without someone sitting on my lap. I have had conversations without breaking off to respond to an infant interrogator. I have reached the bottom of a cup of coffee and found it still hot. In short, I have been more than just a mother. I’d forgotten what it was like.
I’m staying at the Hotel Monte Mulini, in Rovinj, Croatia. It’s truly spectacular and if I could choose anywhere to be more than just a mother, it would be here.
