Alter Ego

Cicero in ancient Rome coined the term ‘Alter Ego’ refering to – ‘another self or a most trusted friend’..The thought just came up today morning as I was making myself a cup of green tea…Im not sure how many SAHM (Stay At Home Moms) who used to be former career women would agree with me but it almost feels like the past – all those mornings where you used to jump out of bed, rush through your morning ablutions, chug your morning tea, bite your morning toast to catch your morning bus to office to meet your boss with her morning smile (or sometimes lack of it), all those afternoon laughs over afternoon lunch and the afternoon work heap, the mid evening tea, and wrap up and the journey back home to evening dinner, T.V late night prayer and finally sweet sweet slumber all seem like a dream a dream where sometimes I felt like a lab rat running a wheel but sometimes a lovely escape from dealing with time..patient yet fleeting time……

Things are different now..God knows the number of times mums have vented about their schedules at length..Im not going into all that the pains and joys of child rearing..but you know what Id like to call on her my Alter ego once in a while..just meet her face to face, just say hi..maybe chat a while with her in the middle of her mid evening stories and have some laughs..would be fun… 🙂
