NaBloPoMo Day 8: Atune

Parenting does amazing thing to one's senses ... not all good, but definitely amazing. I find it amazing that while I am in a crowded area if I called out "Mom!" only my mother responds. I am sure there are plenty of moms there, but my voice is distinct to my own mother.

I used to sleep 10 hours a night without moving. Now, one little peep out of Princess D and I am jarred awake.

Yesterday I came down with a horrible cold and was in a deep sleep. My bedroom door was closed and at the end of the hall my daughter was in her bedroom with the door closed. Yet, I was able to hear her calling.

I jumped out of bed and rushed down the hall to make sure she is alright only to find out she was calling for someone else.

Oh well.
