I've always been told that moms have eyes in the back of their heads. I am a mom now. I have been for a little over two years. So when do I get eyes in the back of my head?
The truth is I could use them now more than ever! My boys are constantly getting into stuff. At this point it's mostly Noah but I fear how bad it will be when Asa is mobile.
The other day I had to make an important phone call. It was one of those calls where you don't want kids bothering you. Heaven forbid they interfere with my response to the automated computer operator. No matter what as soon as I pick up the phone, I am needed more than ever. Noah is hungry. Asa is hungry. Somebody starts crying. Somebody starts screaming. In a moment of frustration I turned my back to the kids and stuck a finger in one of my ears. Ten minutes later I returned to reality.
It was not good.
Noah got into mommy's deodorant.
This never would have been a problem if I had eyes in the back of my head.
