Secret Mother's Business
The five mums are stuck outside the class and we chat and gossip for the 45-minute duration. With two of the mums pregnant and one with a newbie (me), the topics tend to centre round pregnancy, birth and babies.
The conversation today went something like this:
"Why don't people tell you how crap and hard it is before you have kids."
"I don't know, why is that?"
"Because no-one would believe it."
Nods from all round. "Yeah, you're right. How can you explain it?"
"I'd really love another though. Like really."
"You can have one of mine."
