Something for Mother’s Day

Posted by Peter Kenneally on May 10, 2009

‘DRIVING through a public car park one afternoon nearly 10 years ago, I saw a car pull out suddenly in front of me and I slammed on my brakes. There was a brief silence, during which I bit down on the expletive that had made it almost to my lips, then from behind me a small, clear voice said, “Cheeses Christ!”

There followed another moment of silence as I tried to collect my thoughts, and then my three-year-old son explained brightly: “Excuse me Mummy, but I did not say ‘Cheeses pucking Christ’ because you did not hit that car.”

As Philip Larkin almost wrote: “They puck you up, your mum and dad./They may not mean to, but they do.” And, as I was undeniably the family garbage mouth, it was, in this instance, I who had done the pucking up. Such is the power, and the burden, of motherhood.’
