    At first I was thinking trophy wife, but I have met parents who are so involved in their children’s lives that it is smothering. Nicely done.

    Boy did that last line get me. I was thinking she was a little co-dependent but never thought she was a mother! Good job nice little twist

    Surprise ending for sure …. if you love something, ultimately you must let it go!

    Unexpected last line.
    There are mothers like this poem, they must be hell to cope with.

    I too was forming a picture of a trophy wife, until the last line. Smothered by motherly love, must be a difficult way to live.
