A mom without a voice...

Is like a.....what? This phrase keeps popping into my head and I can't come up with the right analogy.

I just never realized how integral my voice was to my bag of mommy tricks. I can't sing. I can't distract with a comment or a funny noise. I can't hum to my poor, fussy baby, I can't read any books and I can't carry on a simple conversation with my toddler. It's been a very very hard day for that reason.

So what do you think? What is a mom without a voice like? A sponge without water? A masseuse without fingers? What?

If anything pops into your head, please share.
