Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Reflexes

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Reflexes

My body changed when I entered motherhood and I'm not talking back flab or droopy boobs. Those were sort of expected, it was the mom arm that flew across the front seat passenger in my car when I slammed on my brakes that surprised me.

To see other reflexes that came with being a mother,


And, the urge to leap from my chair when I hear a child coughing at a restaurant or lunging to catch a stranger's son falling from a play structure at the park.

It's catching a flying sippy cup before it explodes and making it my mission to find the crying lost lil girl's father in Costco. Or smiling at the parent of a kid pitching a fit in the middle of the mall.

It's amazing, you bring home babe and all kinds of new abilities that reveal themselves at the most opportune times like when your tot's forehead is about to hit the door jam, but your hand covers it in the nick of time.

Have you experienced any mommy reflexes?
