Do you guys watch Grey’s Anatomy? I still do. In the latest episode I saw, a mom came in with her sick son. The interns all wanted to discharge the boy, but Dr. Meredith Grey, being a mom herself, believed in the mom’s gut feeling of something terribly wrong and went ahead with more tests. Because of their #momtuition, they ended up saving the boy’s life from a life-threatening disease.
Have you ever experienced this? I have. Nothing as life threatening as a rare disease, though. More of intuition about Basti’s everyday antics. As a stay-at-home mom, Basti and I are together almost 24 hours a day. When he was smaller the only time away from him was a shower. I got to know all his nuances, his little cries, his moods, and his different reactions to everything. The Painter tends to freak out when Basti cries, and he’s perplexed when I tell him, “it’s fake crying”, and when I know that Basti’s really hurt. That’s us. That’s Momtuition.
For this year’s Expo Mom 2013, Mommy Mundo recognizes this uncanny connection we have to our children in the theme, #Momtuition. Even with the amount of information that parents have at their fingertips about anything and everything about parenting, let’s not forget that we have this valuable 6th sense – our gut. We know our children best!
I attend Expo Mom every year, and I always come home with something new and innovative for Basti, myself or the house. The usual suspects will be there – Manila Baby Shop, Mama.Baby.Love/Mamaway, Mommy Matters, Quirks Marketing, Spinkie, Nursingmom, Buggy & Lishy, and other trusted mompreneurs. Making their Expo Mom debut is Mothering Earthlings and Paper Chic Studio! Congratulations Rone and Cai!
