The Magical, Mysterious Mom

Come one, come all, and see the magical, mysterious Mom who knows all, sees all.

She can tell when you need to go to the bathroom, while simultaneously knowing when you went last and when you will likely need to go again.

She can find lost items after checking just three or so likely locations.

She knows when you need a nap even when you, yourself "are not tired". She also knows when you are likely not to nap, but she will try anyway out of sheer dogged devotion to naptime.

She can, just by looking at a dvd from the library, tell you whether or not it's likely to work.

She knows both what you'd like to have for a snack and what would be a healthier alternative, and she knows how to make the healthier choice sound appealing.

She can both guess what you will try to wear today AND what she will actually let you out of the house in.

She knows you will likely reject the yogurt you just picked out from the store, yet she allows you the illusion that you actually know what you like. She knows she's right; it's just a matter of time.

She knows, at all times, the location of your favorite lovey/blanket/pacifier/book and will not be caught out without them, not even on a five-minute drive to the store.

And just so you know, she knows what you smell like just after you get up from your nap. And she totally loves that smell, but she won't make a big deal out of it.

She might even understand your made-up book reading language.

  1. Love it! I'm still learning to not make a big deal out of sweet baby smell. :-)
