When you have your baby, you may wish that someone had given you an extra hand while they were at it. But you were gifted with something far more powerful and useful...
It's a little like "Spidey Sense".
It's that tingle on the back of your neck when you sense that the house is too quiet considering you have two little ones "playing" in their room.
It's that gut feeling that has you checking on your baby in the middle of the night, sensing she's running a fever.
It's the ability to look at your 14-month-old daughter and sense that she won't eat anything but bananas for dinner.
It's sensing that your little boy needs a hug more than anything. Right. Now.
It's sensing that even though it'd be easier to feed the ones you love mac and cheese every night of the week, piling vegetables on their plate will be appreciated when they're older.
It's sensing that a tantrum is on the horizon and getting your child refocused.
It's trusting your senses that you will make the right choices when it comes to friends, TV shows, movies, vaccinations, meals, schools, toys, diapers, medications, doctors, dentists, pets, cars, child locks, gates, vacations, jobs and the millions of other decisions we make each and every day.
