The Quest for Life as a Super Mom

Life as a Super Mom?  Is it really possible?  I have been thinking about this, oh I don't know, the last 3 1/2 weeks since MP arrive... and especially this past week.  Being a Mom is huge identity of mine.  According to my parents, I've wanted to be a Mom since I became a big sister at the age of 15 months.  When something is so important to you, you want to be the best - you want to be super.

First thing first, what is a Super Mom?  My definition of a Super Mom is a Mom who takes care of her family and home at an exemplary level.  Now I like to think that I do a good job of taking care of my family and home, but at an exemplary level - both family and home simultaneously...  I'm not sure how often that happens.

There are some days I feel like I am on top of meal-time, kid activities, and keeping the house clean, but on the same day, bed time will be a struggle and I get behind on laundry, and I get knocked back down to reality and realize that I'm not perfect.

But do I have to be perfect all the time to be a Super Mom?  Will my kids remember the times I made a frozen pizza for supper because I just didn't want to cook that night, or will they remember having picnics in the park after going to the library for story time?  Will they remember dishes sitting in the sink for the day rather than being washed right away, or will they remember singing and dancing to the "Wheels on the Bus" instead?

Maybe I should be looking for Super Mom moments, those little successes that make you feel on top of the world, rather than complete days where nothing goes wrong.  Because is it the moments or days we remember?  I have to admit, I've been having quite a few Super Mom moments lately - but never a full day of only them.

So here's to those Super Mom moments!  For all those Moms out there - I hope you all have a Super Mom moment today, or tomorrow, because I obviously am not having a Super Mom moment today getting this blog posted at a decent time...

Life as a Super Mom
Maybe not always, but at moments I feel like I can and am able to do it all!


  1. You look great- Enjoy the chaos, it will all end too soon!

  2. I think that as long as you're trying your hardest to give your kids the best life they can have, you are already being a super mom :) Even if at the end of the day the dishes aren't done and the laundry is still piled up, as long as you're happy, it doesn't matter :)

  3. You know the old saying, Cooking and Cleaning can wait for tomorrow for babies grow up we learn to our sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs and dust go to sleep, I'm rocking my babies and babies don't keep.

  4. In the end, as long as you love your kids, love your husband and love God I think you and your family will all be happy.

  5. Oh' those precious babies. Congratulations sweet woman! May you be enriched and enabled by our wonderful God's Spirit to pursue everything to the best of your ability! Thanks for dropping by my place too and sharing, and for your kind nomination. :) ~ Blessings out, Amy

  6. You are a good mom. You are a super mom!
