Super Mom

READY… “A suburban mother’s role is to deliver her children obstetrically once, and by car ever after.” ~ Peter De Vries

AIM… I want to know one thing: Why do we only celebrate mothers on one day out of the whole year? Moms are such an integral part of a successful family. I know for a fact, that moms have far too much to do in the short 24 hour window of a day. And yet, moms squeeze in every last second for extra activities, chores, food prep, homework help, laundry, banking, etc. that they possibly can. Sadly, it is the plight of a Super Mom. I must confess; I am a wanna-be Super Mom. Reality check: it’s impossible. However, for awhile, I was going to die trying to be the first ever Super Mom on the planet, darn it! Yeah, that ambition got shot down real fast by the kryptonite-effect the lack of sleep has on your body. So, for now, I’m happy to be a Semi-Super Mom enjoying the roller coaster ride of life with children and learning to take one day at a time. In the meantime, I’ll let my children believe I still have some super secret powers like using the eyes in the back of my head and my ‘mom sense’ for knowing exactly what they are going to do next before they even do it.

For a hilarious recap on everything we moms say in a 24 hour period, click the following link. You can’t watch this and tell me you, or your mom, hasn’t said the majority of these words and phrases all in the same day! Enjoy!

FIRE!   At some point today, have the courage to tell a mom that she’s doing a great job at being a mom. Where are you going to find this mom, you ask? You might find yourself behind a mom in the grocery store check-out line, or hear a fellow co-worker talking about her children, or you may actually be standing next to another mom while waiting to pick up your kids after school. No matter who the mom is, or when or where you see her, if you complement her mothering skills, you are guaranteed to bless her and make her day!

Be Excellent!
