Breaking the Mold of Motherhood

Breaking the Mold of Motherhood I can still see the look of shock on an acquaintance’s face when they discovered I was a mother.  “Where is your son?” they asked me, quizzically… seeming completely confused by the fact that no toys lined my kitchen floor. “He lives with his Dad in Canada” I responded… waiting to see if they would repeat the common look of surprise and discomfort that accompanies this reply.
