Super Powers

The lovely Stasha has graciously allowed me to pick next week’s listicle and is simultaneously helping me with a linkup I have recently started. How cool is that?!?

The topic is An Hour In a Day. Make a list of 10 things that happen in an hour in your day and come link up next week not only with Stasha, but also with me. My linkup usually runs on Tuesday, but next week is special and my linky will open on Monday instead.

Pretty cool, huh?

Now for other pretty cool things. I don’t know about you, but motherhood has afforded me the opportunity to develop some serious super powers. Here are my ten best!

1. I can grow people. I don’t know, but I think that’s a pretty cool super power. I can just see a sweat-pants clad pregnant woman with a cape flying through the air…ok, maybe it’s not for television, but still a cool super power.

2. I have the ability to make miniature people giggle. It may not seem like a super power until you hear that magical sound of a little giggle, then it seems like the best power in the world.

3. My ability to find other people’s crap is staggering. Now if I could just keep track of my keys…

4. I can produce my very own milk which can sustain the life of a little bitty person. I’ve always thought that was pretty cool. I know not everyone has an easy time breastfeeding and I have always felt very blessed that it was never an issue for me.

5. I have developed the power to not be grossed out. I may declare the grossness loudly, but I can still clean up grossness without vomiting. That, my friend is a gift when you have 7 cute, but occasionally very gross people running around.

6. After birthing 7 people whcih came from my own uterus (as was so kindly asked of me the other day) I still have a sene of humor.

7. I can drive a 12 passenger van. It took some practice and backing into a couple of people first, but now I rock the extended van. Definitely a super power.

8. I can get 9 people to church early enough to sit on a bench and not in the overflow almost every week. If that’s not a super power, I don’t know what is. It stems from the fact that if we have to sit in metal chairs, my children become psychotic.

9. I can sing the theme song to nearly every child’s show, educational or not, without too much thought.

10. I can smell a poopy diaper a mile away, even if it isn’t on my own kid. Nearly 13 years of checking for poop has made me an expert.

  1. Bahahahaa … your list had me laughing out loud! I loved it. You birthed SEVEN people!?!?!??!

  2. I think being a mom to seven kids is a super power in itself! This is a great list, I can’t believe I forgot about some of these – the ability to grow people and produce their food as well? Now that is awesome! So funny about the poopy diaper thing, I can always hear a baby or child crying and usually pick out their location where ever we are. More mommy super powers! Love your topic for next week as well.

  3. Getting to church on time is beyond impressive. I am always late, everywhere, with just one!! You are totally rocking this list and next weeks topic. Thank you for sharing your linky with mine. You are a star!!

  5. Birthing seven people alone affords you that super hero cape, or at the very least, your own reserved row at Church!

  6. HAHAHA! I love this. It is so true. I have to agree that growing people is a super power. It never ceases to amaze me that we can do that. Oh and I can never find my keys either. 😉

  7. Holy amazing uterus! 7 kids….I am in awe. I was not blessed with such a fruitful womb. I use to think that I wanted that many but after the ONE I do have (and working in education for 12 years) God for sure knew what he was doing. The other children have grown in my heart :O)

    Getting 9 people out of the house on time IS a super power!!!! FO SHO!

  9. You find things! How wonderful. We have to offer to pay my daughter to find things. She’s our resident detective. And number 8 — that really is a super power. I didn’t think that possible.

  11. Hearing miniature people laugh is THE best thing in the whole wide world! Happy to hear you don’t get grossed out by “unpleasantness”…could make for a very ummm smelly household?!? Unfortunately I do not have that superpower so thankfully my 2 boys were just dry-heavers. ;P Sorry about that.

  12. Wow, 7 people came out your uterus? *bowing* Yeah, that is a superpower. Love the list!
