Wait, what?!?! NOT FAIR

I wake my baby up pressing the power button on my kindle, or my wrist popping or walking away from her.

My cat just walked on her face and she slept through it.

How is that?!?!

(Proof! I just scratched my head and she stirred!!)

  • It's baby radar. All baby's have one but some are more sensitive than others. My DS knew any time Me and DH tried to get intimate and cried. Every-time. It was that darn baby radar...

  • My 6 year old son still does that! There's been many times when a cat got locked in my son's room at night. And the cat would be meowing and scratching at the door and that wouldn't wake him up. But as soon as I open the door to let the cat out...he's awake.

  • They cut the cord at birth, but the emotional one is still strong.

  • It's because they have Mommy telepathy. Do not think her name in your head or she will wake up! After our kids are in bed, we NEVER say their names or else they wake!!!! LOL!
