I am SuperMom without the supernatural powers

I love taking care of my family. I love being the wife and mother. I honestly love doing the things that need to be done in order for our family's needs to be met.
  • cooking
  • cleaning
  • bathing kids
  • dishes
  • laundry-all steps
  • paying bills
  • diaper duties

Despite the happiness I find in these tasks 9and others not mentioned), I also wish that sometimes, just sometimes, I could snap my fingers, or wrinkle my nose or tap my feet AND IT WOULD ALL GET DONE in the blink of an eye.

I enjoy these things. I find them entertaining at times and definitely fulfilling. I can feel my love pouring out onto the things I do, because I know that this helps my family's needs. But I need a break sometimes. I guess its only human.

If it were possible, today would be filled with snaps, wrinkles or taps.


But alas! No Such Luck...

I some movie recently, I think it was called "Mary Poppins" or something and she did some sing and dance about how a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down. I guess it was some kind of metaphor for doing chores around the house. I suppose the moral of the story is to have some sugar-filled treat after you've finished your chores. :-D

Yes...supernatural powers are what we need!
