It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's SuperMom!

Call it psychic, ESP, or telepathy; regardless of the name, all moms share the same super hero power: Mothers Intuition.


For example, if my house goes quiet all of a sudden, I know that someone somewhere is doing something they're not supposed to do. These situations are handled with a general shout of "STOP!". I then hear an "OK Mom" in return. (A good mom should also make sure that whatever mischief was had did not create a continued danger. However, I am not claiming to be a good mom, simply super human).
Another great example is ANYTIME I drive past a McDonalds. As soon as my kids start to ask, I simply say "No, you cannot have McDonalds". They respond with "OK". (Trans Fat crisis averted)

There are other situations that are less common, but trigger mom senses as well. Over the weekend my husband broke out the boxing gloves. As I watched my son being laced in to his tiny glove, I could not help but wonder how many minutes would it take until someone got hurt. I warned them of the looming danger, but like most days I was out voted. Not to be left out, I put in my bet. 5 minutes until somebody starts crying.

Even before the last glove was laced, Journey successfully punched himself in the face (my baby is smart, he just gets overly excited sometimes). There were no tears, but it was enough to convince me that I did not want to stick around to see how it would end. It's not like I didn't already know.

Here here! to a mothers intuition. I have often had to intercept a crisis quietly happening many a day. Funny post!

Shouting "Stop" saves time, because if I ask, "what are you doing", no matter what the answer is always the same "nothing".... And we all know that's a lie.
