Mommy Super Power

Sometimes I wish my Mommy Super-Power was stretching like Elastigirl from the Incredibles.


I’m a mother with a mommy super power, and I’m pretty sure I am not alone in all this super power goodness.

We’re all gifted in different areas, but I suspect someone else may have the same super-power as me, or not.  The range of mommy super powers is far and wide.

Wanna know what my power is?

Super Mommy

I have super vision.

Yes, I wear glasses, but they don’t even interfere with with this super vision.  I can look through all the scratches and smudges on my lens and I can still spot things with my super vision.

Wanna know what I can see?

Piles of clean clothes, folded and waiting to be put away.

No one else in my house can see these piles.  They don’t have super vision.

For years I did not understand how everyone walked right past the kitchen island, piled high with their clean clothes.  Now I know.

pile of laundry

They can’t see them.  They don’t have my super mommy powers.

What’s your mommy super power?

Because I know you’ve got them.

    Ah, yes, the laundry SP, the bathroom TP-SP, and the overflowing garbage SP. I can identify with them all. What about the empty dishwasher and the dirty dishes on the counter SP?

    When there is only one napkin left in the napkin holder, or an empty paper-towel roll on the counter, apparently, only I can see it. Sigh… I’d like a new super-power please.

    I have SuperHearing, and know exactly what everyone is doing, even silently and behind closed doors. Also Angry Eyes, when I look over the tops of my glasses, people, even complete strangers in the grocery store, start apologizing.

      Yes, it’s kind of crazy that email follower list keeps growing. Some days I feel bad for those poor people getting my emails.

      My daughter believes (100%) that she’s not clean until she runs out of hot water. Drains the tank every time. If we all have to be out the door early in the morning, it’s a race to wake up and see who will get the hot water first. I am never that person.

    Hahahaa…. I have that power too! Apparently I am the only one who can see when a toilet paper roll is finished & needs to be replaced with a new one! ;)
