Ane Speaks – Superpower edition

The children are often confused by my uncanny ability to know exactly what they are doing… even when I’m not looking at them.

Truth is, I have decent peripheral vision with my contacts in, I utilize all the reflective surfaces around the house, I have VERY good hearing, and the kids just aren’t all that sneaky yet.

So when I caught Ane out of the corner of my eye going after her brother with a pillow, while I was at the computer and she was walking through the living room, I said, “You’d better not hit Tad with that pillow.”

She froze, and turned and looked at me (I was still looking at the computer screen). “How did you know what I was going to do?” she said in a stunned voice.

I turned around and smiled at her. “I keep telling you, I have eyes in the back of my head. All moms have them.” (This is a line that I have told her before.)

Ane turned on her heel, threw the pillow down, and muttered disgustedly to herself, “I wish I could rip them out.”

    Whoa! Violent much? Maybe it’s not that you have eyes in the back of your head but that she is too predictable.
