My Top 10 Reasons that
I am, indeed, a SUPERHERO:
1. I have SUPER-VISION.
Well, okay.... actually my supervision comes in the form of supervising my kiddos all the time. Still, that's "supervision", right? Right!
2. I have the power to HEAL THINGS!
Well... I used to. I could "kiss" boo-boos and they were almost instantly, miraculously better. That's one cool POWER to have! Sadly, as my kids have gotten older, the boo-boos seem bigger and my power seems to be decreasing.
3. I am PERFECT!
Well, not actually. Just in Riley's young eyes. She finds me flawless still. The older three? Not so much anymore. Oh well, at least I'm still perfect in one person's eyes... for a bit longer.
4. I have the ability to FLY!
I can oversleep by 30 minutes, jump out of bed, rush around the house like a mad-man, get three kids up and out the door, and FLY to school and work and still get us all to the appropriate places at the appropriate times. Now that's FLYIN'!
5. I can makes things
APPEAR OUT OF THIN AIR!
That missing shoe? All four cordless phones that ALL go misplaced at the same time? That beach towel that just doesn't exist until MOM proves it's right where she said it was in the first place.
6. I take on many DIFFERENT LIFE FORMS at the SAME TIME!
I can be "Mom", "The Tooth Fairy", "Mrs. Claus", "Doctor", "Teacher", "Chauffeur", and "Human Encyclopedia" all at the same exact time!
7. I have SUPER-SONIC HEARING!
I can tune-out a million sounds, noises, beeps, and annoying whines. Yet when a voice from 300 yards away says "Mom", I can hear it over the noise of a hundred other voices.
8. I have SUPER AGILITY!
I can carry a baby on one hip, a basket of laundry on the other, have the phone on one shoulder/ear, while pushing a vacuum cleaner, and still pick up toys off the floor with my toes.
9. I'm faster than a SPEEDING BULLET!
Well, at least when my toddlers darted out into traffic, or when my their little plates started to fall from the table onto the carpet below, or when tiny hands dropped my favorite glass bell from 20 feet away.... Yep, lightning fast!
And last but not least...
10. I have the power to KNOW TRUTH & JUSTICE!
Yep, when those little ones point the finger at the other one, or the "I didn't do it", or the "Not mes" come out, this Super Hero can always tell who done it by simply looking deep into the eyes of the culprit. Well, not ALWAYS, but a lot of times I can. (I guess that blows #3 out of the water, huh?)
That's right People. I am SUPERMOM!
What's that? You have these powers too?? Oh well.
"SuperMoms of the world UNTIE!"
(I never said I was a super-typist! Besides, typing one-handed while holding a baby in the other is hard work!)
*And you probably just thought it was because I'm Captain AmErica - Ridding the blogosphere of frowns... one cheery smile at a time, right? Nah - that's just my side-job! (You can read about that here!)
Happy Monday, Earthlings!
