Supermom and a Slice of Toast

“Let me see your shirt.” My youngest son said as I took his cup to fill it with milk before he fell asleep.

I turned and showed him my awesome blue shirt with the red and yellow “S” on the front.
“Hey, that’s a Superman shirt!” He smiled at me.

“Yup.” I didn’t think much of his words as I walked to the kitchen, just a few feet away from his room.

“I have a Superman shirt too, but my shirt has a belt on it.” It’s true. His shirt does have a cool iron-on belt with funky imaginary gadgets on it. I'd love to have one of those rings that the Wonder Twins had...Carolyn an Ice cube (do you notice they were either monkeys or ice cubes? What's up with that?)

“I love ya honey.” I handed him the cup and gave him a quick smile before heading out of his room into the hallway.

“I love ya too, Supermom.”

I took a deep breath as I stopped in mid-step, a little stunned at such a great thing coming from his mouth. I placed my hands on my hips and whispered to myself, “I am Supermom.” Somehow a burst of wind threw my hair back behind me (even though the windows were all closed and the a/c was off).

I felt like I could do anything, except getting that stain out of the bottom of the toilet. Nothing could get rid of that, not even raiser beams shooting from my eyes (that would be so cool).

Now if I could only make time stop (and finish that why do I always have laundry?).

Have a great week everyone. Keep on keepin' on!

Okay, that's not cool. You're not supposed to make me cry AND laugh in a post. You are a superwoman, aren't you?

Seriously, you ARE a SuperMom. One of the very best parents I've ever (EVER) come across. I'm not kidding when I say I want to grow up to be you.

Why do they have to grow up? And why does the pile of laundry never end?

Now you know why Superman only had ONE funky red and blue outfit - it wasn't that he liked the outfit that much, he just depised laundry as much as we do!

That's awesome! Supermom! I need to get one of those shirts!!!

Nichole Giles said...

So cute! And if you ever figure out the answer to the laundry/dishes/ toilet stain problem, let me know. I'm looking for those solutions myself.

Thanks guys. =) =) (double smile)

I agree with you Weston, S.M. hates laundry. Except now we'll all know where he is because he will stink so much!

Supermamas, that we are. It just helps to get a small reminder once in awhile.
