Three Eyed Mama

Before going to bed, one evening, my eldest daughter asked me 'Mama, how is it that you can see things even if you're eyes are both closed?'

She was referring to the fact that I seem to know what she is doing, although I am supposed to be asleep. With both eyes closed. Or I get to know things, even though I am not in the same room with her.

So I told her, what I feel and know to be the truth. That her Mama have a third eye. I guess this is true for all mothers and fathers. Although our third eye refer to our heart, our emotions, and simply because we know our kids.

Then she asked me if she would also have a third eye when she goes to school. I explained to her, that she will earn her third eye, when she became a mother, too.
