Mar 09, 2012 Super Hearing Since my wife became a mommy she has developed super hearing powers. Her ears are always on alert for our son’s whimpers. She can hear him the second he makes the slightest noise from anywhere around the house. At the same time, my hearing has become worse. If it were not for the wife, I would probably sleep through the night without realizing our son wants to be changed or fed. She leaps out of bed at his slightest squeal. I wonder what daddy super power I will develop.
