Why do most of us have it, but other's don't?
A Motherâs Instinct
I don't have it because I don't have the Power of the Uterus.
mother's instinct or feminine intuition, both very useful!!!!
I don't know but it's a weird thing.
I remember going to Wildlife Safari (a drive-through wildlife park) with my mom, very pregnant sister-in-law, and my two very young children.
You drive through, and through, the wildlife, including lions.
Well we happened to be right behind the truck that was feeding breakfast. Lions jump up on the bed of a pickup and drag off horse carcasses.
There was one lioness that kept looking INTO the cab of the truck, and running up to it, and looking like she'd like to be in there...then she'd fight with other members of the pride, and she jumped up on the bed of the truck, then down, then back to the side window of the truck. The driver rolled his window down about one inch and used a little pop gun to discourage her.
So she turned to our car. Mom drove a little Alliance...we were pretty much right on the level of the lioness. She turned and came right up to the back window (about 3 inches), so she was looking right at my little boy who was about 18 months old.
I'll tell you something, lions in abstract are one thing, but when you're in an economy car and one with a bloody face is looking in your window at you, and you just saw the keepers themselves are intimdated by them, you notice how fragile the windows of a car are.
Anyway, mother instinct...my pregnant sister-in-law immediately grabbed my little boy and swung him across her belly to the other side. And we SPED out of there.
While I don't have a Uterus, I had a similar experience...and feeling.
I was at the Houston Zoo with my kids. This wasn't the first trip to the Zoo on a Saturday to Escape Delilah.
But it was the first time Lions were Roaring.
I'm not sure why they were Roaring, but I knew they were behind their cages, and that my kids and I were prefectly safe.
But, I got this sudden shot of adreniline, and every hair on my body stood on end, and I had to fight the urge to grab my kids and scamper up a tree.
As you scampered up the tree, would your kids be clinging to your long chest hair?
Well, perhaps, but I'd think my back-hair would be more accessable
Why is that we never hear of a FATHER'S instinct?
Is it because it actually does not exist?
Or is it because the PR crew for moms is so much better at promoting their propaganda?
I think men have a very strong protective instinct. I've certainly seen men dive into dangerous, or perceived dangerous, situations to protect/save/defend kids, without thinking twice. And men drown every year trying to save kids who are drowning. I don't know if I could jump in water for anyone...for one thing I know I'm not a good swimmer. Hence my extreme vigilance when it comes to kids and water.
When my son was first born, anytime he made a noise I would wake right up.
I do not have the instinct to know when he has taken his diaper off while in bed and wiped it everywhere. (happened for the second time this morning )
