Being a SAHM requires a great amount of power ... Super Power, that is. Just for fun, I compiled a list of super powers that might make my life a little easier. Which powers do you long for?
Super-Stretchy Arms. Elastigirl knew what was up when using her powers for good housekeeping. I've often been stuck in a chair nursing and stretched my arms as far as I could to try to reach for a glass of water or the phone. All to no avail. Stretchy arms are first on my Wish List!
Floating. This would be useful when leaving the room once a baby or toddler has drifted off to sleep. How many times have you wished for this, too?
Teleportation. I would basically use this as my primary mode of transportation. My husband would be glad because we wouldn't have to buy a second vehicle. Parking would be a breeze, and talk about saving on gas! Very eco-friendly.
Physical Duplication. If there were more than one of me, there is a greater likelihood that my house would be cleaner and my hair would look better. Only a chance, though. I'd have to be able to turn the duplicate on and off because, seriously, I'm not willing to share my husband ... even with ... myself. (Not sure if that makes sense.)
Super Speed. For all of the unpleasant tasks that SAHMs have to do, like changing poopy diapers, raking the leaves, and mopping floors. The things I just want to get over with as soon as possible. Also, I've always been kind of slow on account of being pigeon-toed and generally un-stealth. Being fast at something other than my multiplication tables would resolve some childhood issues for me.
Super Strength. I will use this to open all jars and possibly carry all of my children at one time when trying to exit a building instead of herding them like cats.
Invulnerability. To tiredness and illness ... and mood swings. Oh, and chocolate and coffee cravings. These things just make trouble for me when I give in.
It's silly to brainstorm what Super Powers I would like, but all in good fun. Have you ever wished for super powers? What would make the top of your list?
