Hey Mama, What's Your Superpower?

One morning last week, I had a rare, quiet moment to myself. A quiet moment, interrupted by my kiddos screams... "Spider, MAMA.... SPIDER!"

I ran in to the room where my kids were playing, and without a second thought, smashed the spider with my bare hand. I am deathly afraid of spiders!

This was not the first time my mama superpowers were kicked in to high gear, and it got me thinking, what are my fellow Super-Mom's superpowers? I asked the amazing mamas of the LA Mommy Blogger Tribe, SD Mommy Blogger Tribe and CSC Mommy Blogger Tribe, what their superpowers are, and they replied:

"I carry two children and groceries while talking on the phone!" - Lara Scott, LA Mommy Blogger Tribe.

"My mommy superpower is, I am never not doing laundry. Cooking dinner? Also doing laundry. Putting kiddos to bed? Also doing laundry. Out for drinks with friends? Still doing laundry. On a fabulous tropical vacation? Somehow also still doing laundry." - Kate Woodruff Felton, LA Mommy Blogger Tribe

"I have cat like reflexes... mama runs to the rescue before he digs through the trash, colors the walls, eats something he’s not supposed to...etc." - Sarah Bockstahler, SD Mommy Blogger Tribe

"My mommy super power is affection. My children love it when I give a warm hug or kiss." - Natalie Heatley, CSC Mommy Blogger Tribe

"My superpower is letting my kids think they are in control. My other superpower is being able to live in denial." - Rosie Hong, LA Mommy Blogger Tribe

"I am able to play Monster Trucks and Princesses at the same time including their voices!" - Rachelle Lennox, LA Mommy Blogger Tribe

"I use one hand for everything! The other one is always holding something or someone." - Renata Mentor Medeiros, SD Mommy Blogger Tribe

"Knowing exactly what they are doing anywhere in the house just off sound alone, day or night." - Raquel Harbin, LA Mommy Blogger Tribe
