I, Mother.

I Should Have Let You Sleep With Me

But I said no.

It was 2 am when you came into our room. I woke up immediately, of course, sensing your presence. You wanted to sleep with me. You wanted to fit right in between mom and dad.

But I said no.

This night was not unlike any other night. You weren’t sick. You didn’t seem scared. You just wanted to climb into bed with me.




The tales of motherhood, honestly.
