6 Incredible Super Abilities Only Moms Develop
There are a lot of things that motherhood has done for me: given me that infamous “motherhood apron” that people talk about and I naively ignored, forever ruined my ability to eat bacon and turkey wraps after I barfed one up especially violently, and not least of all, provided four incredible human beings I count myself lucky to even know.
But motherhood has also come with a few unexpected perks of the job, giving me the opportunity to get incredibly good at a few special skills, like …
Give me 20 minutes, a pack of wet wipes, and occupied children, and I can work miracles, people.
Motherhood is not always pretty, you guys. And it's a cliche for a reason, because no matter how stealthily I try to sneak away to the bathroom for 0.2 seconds, they will always find me.
Along with the ability to sense any tantrum before it happens. Now, who wants to eat the zebra??
Trust me. Weightlifters may have bigger muscles than me, but I can almost guarantee those muscles aren't put to good use on an everyday basis like a mom juggling a baby, a toddler, and having to deal with the laundry room not being on the main floor. Throw in a double stroller and you've got yourself a full-body workout.
And yet, I can still become completely immobile and shut down every part of my body at 9 p.m. on any given night. Where are those reflexes then, huh?
Thermometers are nice, especially those really fast across-the-forehead ones, but all you really need is a touch of the back of your hand on the forehead. And sometimes, not even that.
