So, we’ve been watching a lot of superhero movies last weekend and I think I am having a hangover. It made me think about what if I have an extraordinary power while being a mom. I think I’d like to have the extraordinary power of having chores done in a snap of my finger. LOL.
I’d like to ask you if you too will have an extraordinary power while being a parent, what do you think will it be?

This is a great question!
I'd love to fly with my daughter. She loves space and nature, so it would be so great to spend a day together looking out over the world and having so many wonderful stories to talk about afterwards!
Plus the freedom of not doing chores, I would also love all the chores to be done for me everyday if I was allowed 2 superpowers!
I think that if I could have one parenting super-power it would have to be the power to have a do-over, so that on those occasions that I was short tempered or not paying enough attention because I was distracted by the busyness of life, I could go back and be more centred and present in those moments.
I did think that it would be amazing to have the power to protect our kids from life's challenges, but I realise that those challenges are also the things that build character and grit in our kids and that preventing them from being able to experience these would be doing them a disservice.
What an interesting question!
I would love to have boundless energy. If I could sleep very little and still feel lively, I could get so much more done. Instead of feeling tired, I could just keep going to enjoy life to the fullest.
I spend so much time dragging around that a boost in energy and more time to complete all that needs to get done would be fantastic!
I love both of your answers! Prolonging or going back to the baby years would be amazing. I loved that phase. I'd love to be able to speed clean or have the chores done with a snap of a finger! Folding laundry and sweeping would be at the top of the list.
The practical parent in me wishes I had a superpower to help my kids with their emotions. I wish I had a bottomless toolbox and the expertise to combat the tantrums and challenges. And inhibit my ability to get frustrated and impatient!
Oh I love this question!!! How fun!!
Hmmm......I think that if I had a super power it would be to manipulate time. My kids are growing so fast and i feel like those baby years went by in a flash. It would be so amazing to be able to go back and cuddle my babies while they slept and enjoy some of those moments again :)
