Familiar Footsteps

We live in a high ranch, so anyone coming in has to walk up or down a flight of steps to get to different levels of the house. And I have discovered recently that I recognize everyone's footsteps! They all sound different. In my husband's case, I also get the extra clue of hearing him drop his gym bag on the floor of the foyer/landing.

Do you find that you are also in tune to the different footsteps of your family members, so that you can call out to them without even turning around?

I do that all the time. My kids always want to know how I knew it was them - I tell them I'm the Mom so I know everything.

I think I might have finally learned the secret to how moms have eyes in the backs of their heads!

Well, I hadn't thought about it before, but I can definitely tell Vann's from Sophie's footsteps.
