Well, in case you were curious, Mom's have that sense too. I like to refer to it as Mom-sense.
Unfortunately, however, I don't believe I was granted this Mom-sense immediately after giving birth. Back then, I'm fairly certain I had no idea what I was doing. However, this sense of mine has been cultivated and honed over the last 19 months of my child's life.
My Mom-Sense usually kicks in as soon as I recognize that creepy silence that typically occurs at least once a day in our household. I know you Moms know that exact silence I'm talking about.
The lack of Toddler Wildebeest Feet running amok on the wood floors. That sudden lack of Toddler Chatter. The calm before the storm, so to say, when your Mom Gut knows that The Toddler is doing something he knows he isn't allowed to do.
Most recently, my Mom-sense perked up when I caught The Toddler sitting in the middle of the dining room table brandishing a pair of craft scissors that I'm pretty sure I left out of his reach, you know, when he's standing on the floor where he belongs.
My Mom-sense also kicked in that time that I caught him precariously perched a top the back of the accent chair in our living room, pointing to the canvases hanging above his head exclaiming, "Baby! Baby!"
Just this morning my Mom-Sense radar went wild when I found The Toddler standing in the middle of the family room dumping his Apple-Berry juice box all over the beige colored rug. Why was he doing this? Oh, only because Curious George had ended and he absolutely detests when "the real children" come on in between episodes to say, teach him something.
Where am I during each of these escapades, you ask? Oh, you know. I'm usually just in the next room over or in the bathroom for what truly must only be .7 seconds trying to pee with a little privacy.
So, what has your Mom-Sense led you to find? Please share. I know I'm not in this one alone, Mamas!
Happy Friday, Loyals! Have a great weekend
