Super-Hero Mom


I’ll bet you didn’t know that I’m a super hero.  Are you gasping from surprise?  This is new to me, too, as I was just informed by Jackson today- right after I killed a spider and flushed it down the toilet- that I am a super hero.  I can wield a mean wad of toilet paper, people.  There are no insects that can out wit this super-hero mom.


After relishing for a few minutes in my new found super-ness, I started thinking about how awesome motherhood is.  Too often, I focus on all the mistakes I make and completely overlook all the things I do that keep my home safe and sound.  So, I came up with a list of super hero qualities that I believe every mom shares.  This one’s for all you supermoms out there who don your sweats, clean up spills, carpool, change diapers, and still have time to brush your teeth…all in a single bound:


Super-Hero Moms…

  • Thwart bugs with shoes, tissue, and sometimes (when desperate times call for desperate measures) bare-handed.
  • Can get spaghetti sauce stains out of pretty much anything.
  • Have mastered the art of boo-boo kissing and tear-wiping.
  • Make silly faces and perform Irish Riverdance for their children (leaving no trace of evidence behind).
  • Turn Rascal Flatt’s “Life is a Highway” into a bedtime lullaby for a very eager little boy.
  • Make mac-n-cheese look like fine-dining.
  • Turn vacuuming into a fun game of chase.
  • Recite at least one Disney movie word-for-word.
  • Nurse a baby while using the toilet, and talk on the phone all at the same time.
  • Listen to the “why?” behind the “what?”.
  • Love unconditionally
  • And toot her family’s praises louder than a train horn.


If you said, “I do” to anything on this list then you, too, are a super hero.


It’s snack time…and time for this supermom to get to work…until next time…

    Hmmm, so I must be a super hero too. It’s news to me! The nursing on the toilet while on the phone brings back some memories :) HAHA! But I would NEVER admit that, especially on the internet.
