Watching with your ears

Ever since we were little kids we’ve wondered how our moms always knew what we were doing, even with their back turned.  It used to be blamed on the “eyes in the back of my head” but I always had my doubts about that.  Now I know, IT’S A LIE!  Mom’s don’t have eyes in the back of their head.  However, something changes drastically about a mommies sense of hearing as soon as that lil baby pops out.  We gain a bat like “radar” to any sound our child is making.  Now that I’ve been a mommy for almost a year, I can be in a totally different room from Qade and still know what he’s doing.  In fact the other day I stole a cat nap right on the floor while he was playing, but even while I was dozing my ears were “watching” him.  If I heard a sound that was “new” my eyes popped right open.  Weird!  So the cat is out of the bag.  You all thought your moms had an extra set of eyes, but they were really just watching you with their ears.  It’s great that God gives us exactly what we need to be the best moms for out little ones. 🙂  Happy listening!
