If you are a mother, you have super powers. Whether you may know it or not, I am sure you can manage to drink cold coffee, fold laundry and rock the baby’s bouncy seat with your foot. Maybe you make the World’s Best Mac and Cheese or have the perfect cure for healing boo-boos. This month we asked our readers what their super powers were; here are their answers! – Michelle Smid, community outreach coordinator.
What is your Mama Super Power?
Hubby said I do great with just one arm while child is on the other one. – Lauren Coto
My 3.5 year old said yesterday when I handed him a snack that I was the “best muma in the world”. Cue heart melt. – Kylie Blenkhorn
I can function on very very little sleep. I have had days when my daughter was up all night and I maybe had three hours of broken sleep. Despite that I was able to get up, go to work and conduct myself in an extremely efficient and effective manner in a very fast paced government job! – Katie Lee
My super hero power is singing babies to sleep. When I was still working as a nurse I could always sing and rock the babies to sleep, and my kids’ eyes get heavy as soon as I start singing. (Staying asleep is a different story, unfortunately!) – Lorren Lemmons
I am not sure if this is *really a super power but I am proud of it . I have a weak stomach , meaning it flips and churns at the slightly smell of the brown stuff, but thanks to my darlings especially my eldest son (who has Hunter Syndrome) I can now clean, wipe even pick up the brown stuff all while singing and smiling. My stomach doesn’t even register what the brown stuff actually is anymore !!!! – Geraldine Renton
I can finish laundry, vacuuming and dinner for the evening every Monday before noon ; ) Husband says it’s my robot mode. – Marisa Svalstedt
