UNIVERSAL . It was going to be UNIQUE. Both fit. Becoming a mother is universal, language is not really a barrier. Becoming a mother is also unique, nothing whatsoever comes close to it. Until it happens, you don’t get it. Well, I didn’t. I had girlfriends who had babies before me, and I really truly was completely unaware. Still in my lovely singledom bubble of me-ness, world of work and play, I was blissfully unaware of what being a mummy comprehended, to be truthful I though pah! Cop out! How easy to do the lady of leisure escape route……. Shut up…….! I eat my words. 1,2,3 babies later (that wasn’t part of the plan…….!) I now take my hat off to the Mummies…. I salute you women! And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Unique, yes. Universal, absolutely.
