Moms have about a gazillion superpowers, and that’s not counting the ones our kids and husbands think we have. We’re expected to wake up with all the answers, and have the world in the palm of our hands before bedtime. Although we appear perfect on the outside, not many people understand the pressure we feel on the inside, and how high our standards as mothers actually are.

My kids are old enough to help out with dinner and chores, and they don’t need much supervising on homework and anything else school related. However, they were tiny terrors once upon a time, and I wish I’d read the memo on how to handle it all, seamlessly. Wait- that’s right- there is NO MEMO! Each day is a new day, and we do the best we can.

There is no such thing as a supermom- there is only mom. Have fun with your new title, Supermom. Make a game out of all the things you have to do. Take a deep breath, and allow yourself to live and love life. So, mom, stand tall, don your cape, and rule the world!
