As you enter the house, and keep your car keys on the counter, balancing your laptop bag on one shoulder and the groceries on the other, your thoughts are filled with arranging dinner and to-do lists.

When your daughter runs up to you and asks for the car keys, you realise, with a slightly sinking feeling, she isn't going to be home for dinner.

Conversations about passion and career, the difference between men and boys, the balance of tradition and modernity, the fine line between equality and compromise.

The wisdom that was whispered down generations, was instilled in you, without you realising. Through the form of stories, while warm coconut oil was smeared into your scalp.

You struggle with a decision - you wonder if you want to be that kind of Mother, or can ever be?

As she puts on lipstick and a pair of shoes you don’t remember buying her, you realise how much she’s grown.  And a feeling of urgency helps you make your decision.
