it’s unsettling to hear silence when my life is one long stream of toddler consciousness – now, I want it, peeeze, mummy, mummy, mummy.but when it’s gone, the silence I craved is hollow.
Nice thoughts Fran, and I know what you mean. I’ve got a few nights of this silence as of tonight, and it’s just strange!
This is so true Fran! …you feel so full you’re gonna burst with it all when it’s going on and on and on (even though underneath the business you absolutely love them)…then when you get that ‘peace’ after 10 minutes you’re looking at them sleeping thinking how adorable they are…and missing them!
You sound like a really loving mum!

mmm? …are we missing …missing torturous the kinder? …mmmm? :)The nature of love I ’spect.
This is very beautiful and touching. I love how you described the silence as hollow.. because I image under those circumstances it would be :)
very well worded… i have 3 children of my own… 14, 12, and 20 months… longed for the silence… then when the silence was there… i missed the noise.. now i have it again… and i am happy as a clam=0).
catherine….what a change after 10 years..!
