Let’s take a look the inside of the heads of some moms (and sometimes dads) when confronted with childhood illnesses and injuries. Don’t misunderstand, mothers are rad and this is not a slight on them. It’s just that some moms are willing to open-mouth an elbow to suck the poison and germs out when their little one wipes out on asphalt or pace around wondering if they should call the pediatrician because they thought they heard a sneeze through the baby monitor. It’s amazing and wonderful. But it’s also hilarious.
We did several diagrams on this subject, so don’t mistake our focus on Moms as singular. Dads and kids also deserve thorough analysis as well.
So here we have it: a study on a mother’s (especially a first-timer’s) reality versus perception. A mother’s hypochondria. We call it: hypo-mom-dria.
