Sometimes I just want to escape from the NOISE.

You cry and I donít understand what you want. The screams and the tears, they drive me insane. Then you giggle, and gurgle, and squeal and coo and I suddenly love all the noise again.


Sometimes I just want to escape from the MESS.

The tornado of toys and clothes strewn about; the daily spills of food and drink. Oh why does it have to be so sticky all the time? Armed with my cloth I begin to erase all traces of mess then suddenly Iím stop in my tracks. There on the window pane are ten little fingers. Evidence of your presence in my lifeÖand I sit and just enjoy the beautiful sight.


Sometimes I just want to escape the FRUSTRATION.

I have so many questions and not enough answers. Am I doing the right thing? Will you grow up the right way with the choices Iíve made? Why canít I seem to get it just right? Then I put down the books and pick you up in my arms. I look in your eyes and I know deep inside that the best teacher of all is time and experience.


So we head of to play, making more noise messÖand I feel the frustrations all starting to fade.

And I know deep inside that escaping from you is the last thing I want. You caught my heart in a tight grip of love the day you became my child and I your mother.

I love this! It's what every parent goes through at some point, yet the love they have for their child quickly replaces their negative feelings. Beautiful!

Creatively done! Very good. I only noticed that of should be 'off'. A story that many of us can relate to.

As a mother of five, I can definitely relate to this! The noise, the mess, the frustration, and the work - wouldn't it be good if it would just all go away? And then they do something and our heart lurches and we realise again why we enjoy being a mum. Well done. I'd like to encourage you to expand on this and submit it to a parenting magazine. I'm sure others will enjoy it as much as I have. Blessings, Jules.
