As a mother it is easy to feel isolated in a ghost town. Stress passes through the same body, which was strong enough to house another human, like oxygen. With questions like, “Do we have enough money? Is that playground safe? And what will the neighbours think?” stir panic as efficiently as the TV chef you expect yourself to be. Nightmares of our precious little angels having their arms amputated resulting from splinters inflicted by wooden park equipment. If it will make you feel better, you’re not alone.
