Instinct

Mother's especially.
Mine - now that I am one.
Should have trusted them.
Should have trusted my own gut feeling.

Scenario 1
As I entered Q's school gate to pick her up just now, I saw one of her teachers looking for someone. I was 200 metres away but my gut feeling says that she was looking for me. Because Q is unwell.

As I was about 5 steps away from her, one of Q's friend's mom said that that particular teacher was indeed looking for me.
Q is not feeling good. Went into her class and saw Q, holding a bucket. She had just vomited.

My gut feeling was right!


Scenario 2
I have a suspect of what has been making Q unwell. In fact R was unwell too last weekend.
Been having this notion since the first time R vomited last Saturday, but did not take heed.
So what happened to Q in Scenario 1 just confirmed it.

Why didn't I trust what I was feeling?


Scenario 3
So off with oily keropok and omelette for a short period.
Q had vegetable soup and rice for dinner.
7 spoonful I said, but my gut feeling (again) feel that she will stop at 5.
And if she takes the number 6, she will vomit again.

True enough, when Q asked for the 6th spoonful, I gave her.
Not paying attention to what I was feeling.

And right after that, all of the rice fed went into the toilet bowl.
Aisshhh......


Lesson to be learnt.
Trust your instinct, Mommy!
