Nothing and no one escapes the keen eye of Seasoned Mom! (Dun dun DUN!)


I like the fact that DB just told you straight out. No denial. Just honest.

I prefer to think that you are psychic or just a really good mom,

Too funny. I had a friend of my daughters try to act like her mom on the phone to help my daughter get out of some trouble. They still don't know how I could know it wasn't.

Too funny


They (and your BIL) will never second-guess your motherly prowess, never.

Little Miss Sunshine State

My mother used to say "Mothers have eyes in the back of their heads".


Too funny! I love when you can catch your kids in the action without them knowing how you can do it!


This is funny...smart Mom. Those kids will not get away with anything.
I had my kids convinced for years that I DID have eyes in the back of my head.


I love it when moms use their powers for good...we should come with our own music! My oldest asked me one day, after getting on to him for doing something he shouldn't have been even though he was in another room..."how do you do that?". My answer..."It's a Mommy secret power."
To which he just said, "Cool."

Mom Radar strikes again!


Don't you just LOVE when that happens?


My husband was once shot at while tick tacking. When he got home, out of breath he sat down and told him mom, "You won't believe what happened to me!" She said, "What'd you do? Get shot at?" I still think he is a bit freaked out by that! Mother's intuition is powerful.


Funny! Yes - some things only a mother knows!

Have a good weekend - Kellan

I love the honesty. Would you rather them not tear clothes? Sure. But would you want them to sit around playing video games all day as an alternative? No way! Dirt and snags happen.

You've got your Mom on, all right.


Moms just got a 6th sense I think...I always seem to know when something is a miss with my beans...I always told em you better not lie to me because I will find out ...I always seem to find out muhahahaha....so glad I stumbled upon your blog


OK, good advice, I will never lie to you! You're too sharp!

Men don't realize there's a detectiving gene that is triggered whenwe give birth.

Do you wear a deer stalker cap and smoke a big pipe?

Come back this week for Republican convention coverage.


Mom Powers are too awesome

Jennifer H

Oh, you're good.


My daughter is only four, so I haven't revealed to her exactly how I know everything. For now, she thinks I'm all knowing, and while it still works in my favor, it's my little secret that I'm not.


You will be an excellent school teacher!!! :)


I'm impressed that you noticed and KNEW what had happened. I'm even MORE impressed that DB told you straight-out, w/o any trickery. I bet it impressed GB, too.

You are THE MOM, Jenn!


You go girl!
