Harper has recently become obsessed with super heroes and has been asking so many questions about all of their magic and super powers. The other day after making capes for the girls out of dish towels, I heard Harper tell Eloise, “well, I might want to have all the powers from The Incredibles. Or maybe mom’s super powers, she can draw anything AND carry all three of us up the stairs at once!” I laughed so hard, and was so humbled by her sweet response. And I couldn’t help but think about all of the amazing super powers that moms really do have!
Moms can make themselves invisible when it comes to putting their children’s every need before their own. Moms have superhuman strength when it comes to protecting their families. Moms can heal with a kiss, and fix just about everything else with a hug or a hot glue gun. But that’s not all, we also have powers that even The Incredibles probably couldn’t pull off.
Like, the ability to make a perfect over easy egg while two toddlers physically climb you like zombies.
The ability to put on a full face of makeup, mascara included, in the three and a half minute Starbucks drive through.
Or maybe the ability to not completely lose your shit when all your kids are screaming at the top of their lungs about who got a bigger cup of milk, the tv is blaring at max volume 36 because someone is sitting on the remote, and your husband interrupts it all to ask you to put a duvet cover on.
Whatever it is, if you’re feeling defeated or wondering if you’re doing things right, remember that you are amazing! And you can do things that nobody else can. So pat yourself on the back & tell us what your super powers are, we would love to hear them! XO58
