Free tubal ligation with every copy?
Mum A did an interview this week where the interviewer confessed that the book had almost put her off having children.
This wasn’t our intention at all when we set out on our writing journey, but it did get us thinking that perhaps the book is slightly skewed this way. When we had a chat about it, we realised it’s probably because we spend a lot of time in the book divulging the truth. The real truth. And a lot of these truths are truths we have never divulged before. To anyone. They’re the things we’ve bottled up inside for a long time . Things we’ve pushed down beneath the other stuff that it’s easy to admit to. Some of these truths are things we haven’t even been able to admit to ourselves until now.
At the end of the interview, Mum A joked that each copy should come with a free tubal ligation. The lovely interviewer thought this was funny, but didn’t seem averse to the idea (again, oops).
So, how about you? Do you have people in your life you can admit the bad stuff to, as well as the good stuff?
