Super Control

This is the next post, in what I hope to be many as part of a blog project I am doing with three other ladies. At the end of my post I will give you the links so that you can check out what they have to say on our topic. Who knows, maybe you will find something else you like.

Today's topic is what super power do you have or would you like to have? 

I personally would like to fly.  I think it would be pretty cool to just jump up and fly over all the traffic and congestion that is regular life.  Imagine feeling the air streaming along your skin.  The freedom that flying would give you.  If the kids pissed me off, I could just fly away.  If Red Heart pissed me off I could fly away from him too. 

But, the reality is that I don't really want a super power for me.  I want a super power for Mac.  I want him to have the super power of being able to control his emotions.  These emotions he feels must be much more powerful than average people emotions, because they so overwhelm and control him that he needs a super power to deal with them.

He can be happy and amazing and wonderful one second and the next second I am pulling him off his sister.  As he gets older and stronger I have to work harder to maintain my physical strength advantage. 

This is an old song that I am singing here, the fact that managing a toddler in a tweens body is difficult and causes a variety of reactions from the public.  The good and helpful and the not so good and not so helpful reactions are all part of the tapestry of my world.  But, one super power could remove that aspect of my life.  He he could only calm down enough so that we can talk to him, so that he has enough time to make a better choice, all our lives would be improved.

Since I don't know if that is really possible, I guess I will fly.  I will feel the wind against my skin and be free as a bird.  I will soar in the clouds and when anything bothers me, well, just look up.... it's a bird, it's a plane, it's supermom.

    flying would be fun. ever see "the boy who could fly?" i loved that movie as a kid.

    this is merrylandgirl, btw. google is being annoying about letting me post as myself. :P
