And Your Super Power is…

Have you ever been poked in the face repeated for 15 mins by tiny little fingers till you thought you were going to burst into tears? Have you ever had a toddler try to use you as a makeshift jungle gym and accidentally kick you in the face more than once?

Have you ever tried to respond to a simple text or even look at your phone without having a litany of ‘Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!’ drive you to distraction? Have you ever tried to get a 2 year old to sit on a potty when she clearly doesn’t want to? Have you ever had to explain to a toddler why she can’t have popcorn and ice cream for dinner? Have you ever felt the urge to barricade yourself in the coat closet and stress-scroll through Instagram in an attempt to sooth your anxiety but have managed to not give in to that urge?

If you have experience any (or all) of the above and are still (mostly) sane, then congratulations! You are a superhero and your super power is patience!

Now go practice that super power and clean up the box of fruit loops your kid just upended on the kitchen floor and is currently trying to eat. After all, with great power comes great responsibility, right? I just wish it also came with free chocolate cake.

      1. Every stage of parenthood is hard 😁 I don’t know how parents with a baby AND a toddler in the house maintain their sanity!

      2. I actually have friends with children quite literally 9 months apart! I fall to my knees when I see them and praise them … then hand them a glass of wine! x

  1. Here’s a news flash: Toddlers are not the only ones who dump out cereal on the kitchen floor. When our oldest was a junior in high school she was getting a snack of dry cereal. For some reason she chose to open the box upside down, and the entire box of Cheerios went to the floor. I was watching, and all I could think was, “This is what they mean when they tell us that brain research shows that teen brains are totally undeveloped.” The fun never ends!
