Quite often as I am going through the day, I think of things I want to write about and even go about composing a post in my head.... then something else happens. It is an occupational hazard of having a big family.
Have you ever noticed the "Mama feeling"?
The other day Princess came downstairs and said her throat was sore- not terribly sore just a bit scratchy. My mama radar started dinging. Something was off. She wasn't running a temperature and she was not acutely ill- something just seemed off. I swear I felt like Ms. Clavel from the Madeline books.
I already had appointments for 2 kids at our doctor for that afternoon (we see a family practice doctor so we all see the same person) so I called and added her on.
She had strep. I talked with B and he said that he thought she seemed fine and would have sent her on her way. There was nothing concrete that I could say: this is why I took her to the doctor. Just a feeling. Its not the first time its happened either.
Does anyone else have mama gut? Or just a feeling something isn't right?
