Mommy! Come here!

It doesn't take long for a new mother to start to decipher the different cries from her newborn. It's quite amazing I think. I remember hearing this sort of thing before I had kids and just couldn't understand how that could be. But it is. You know if they are crying because they are hungry, wet, tired, etc.

When the child becomes older, you learn what sort of tone they are using when they call for you. If I hear Caleb or Sarah say, "Mom, come here!" I can tell if it's because they are excited and accomplished something, or if it's a "Mom, come here!" because they are hurt (or their sibling is hurt).

So this morning, when I could hear a since of urgency in Caleb's voice when he said, "Oh, Mommy!! Come here quick!" I wondered what could be wrong. He was just playing in his room, so I couldn't imagine what it could be. Did he see a bug? Did Sarah shut herself in the closet? Did one of them pinch their finger in a container? Who knew...

I raced into his room, and I saw him sitting there with his Batman toys. He looked up and me and said sincerely...

"Mom! Spiderman is stuck in Batman's car!"

I held back a chuckle. "Okay, let's see if Mommy can get him out of there!" I said to him.

And I did. I saved the day. After all, it was quite an emergency you know.
