Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

Profile of a Superhero

Super-name: Mommymommymommymommymommymommymommymommy. (You can just call me Mommy.)

Super powers: Child wrangling; stain removing; tantrum prevention; crayon confiscating; and of course, hiding an extra set of eyes in the back of my head. I have also recently perfected "THE LOOK" with my front eyes.

Hobbies: I enjoy running cartoon interference and playing the 'nighty-night' game.

Annoying habits: I often find myself "Sshh-ing" when no one is around. This might be annoying if anyone actually were around, but I am a superhero here, so annoying habits are off the table.

Alter-ego: Make-up wearing sophisticate who can always find clean clothes and a nice pair of heels. The original prototype for this woman was 30 pounds lighter, but has unfortunately been forced to pack on weight for a more realistic disguise. She also never EVER wears furry houseshoes outside, nor does she still secretly wear maternity underwear 4 years after giving birth. There is never spit-up on her shirts and her socks always match. She does not forget to wear a bra on occasion and always remembers to shave her legs. Her hair has zero rat nests and she doesn't even own a hair-tie.

Catch-phrase: "It's pony-tail time!" This is derived from numerous attempts at letting my hair down, only to be called back to duty by an unruly child or contaminated toilet.

Who is YOUR inner superhero?

LOL This reminds me of a post I did called Who Am I? http://melaniemoyer.info/writing/2008/04/who-am-i/ I do the "Sshh-ing" thing too... I've even been caught to shushing toilets that run incessantly...
