Mother Instinct Is Crazy!

A couple nights ago in the wee hours of the morning, I was minding my own business dreaming about, “That of which a lady should never speak about” #singlemumlife 🤷🏽‍♀️

Anyway I hear this faint cough, now usually Shamaya is the coughing queen and during the night and can cough for hours…. So, usually she gets up and sorts herself out. So with that I fell asleep again 😏

Then all of a sudden I have a flash in my dream of mini muffin struggling to breathe! And that there’s this high pitched gasp for air. If you’ve read my old post My baby has Laryngomalacia you’ll know about his previous respiratory condition.

Now this part is Crazy!!!!!

I wake up mid air and I start sprinting to his room. Low and behold he had coughed so much he couldn’t catch his breath.

As bewildered as I was; I was also surging with adrenaline and ready to help him.

It was nuts! Here’s this little boy coughing in front of me struggling to catch his breath and honestly in the space of 30 seconds I’d managed to get to him, calm him and give him water. Thing is…….

I definitely wasn’t fully conscious during this!

What I find amazing is how In sync I was with him………How, even through my dream I was propelled out of my bed to his side without consciousness or delay.

I wish I had more to say but honestly all I can say is:

Thank God for Mother Instinct!
