Mommy Super Powers!

Last night I couldn't get to sleep... I just laid there, staring at the ceiling for hours. I think I finally fell asleep around 2 am, but never really slept well. And to make matters worse, after saying how awesome Ollie was at sleeping in, he was up and hungry at 6am. So, yeah, I slept for all of four hours last night, if you can even call it sleep.

Mid-day I realized I was not even really that tired, just annoyed. Apparently, after 11-months of being constantly sleep deprived, I can function well on little-to-no sleep!  I guess that's good. I mean, I think I am even going to go so far as to call it a Mommy Super Power!  And then I started thinking... What other super powers do I have now that I am a mommy?

I realized that I have the ability to...

1.  Have limitless patience that is Sainthood worthy.
2. Carry a brick shit house baby with one hand, on one hip, for miles.
3. Clean up puke, pee and shit with out puking.
4. Sing along to kids songs on a constant loop in the car.... by myself for miles before I realize I could be listening to anything else. (Ok, maybe that is not a super power, but it is pretty amazing to me that I haven't lost my mind after l hearing BINGO for the four hundredth time!)
5. Be repeatedly punched in the face, eye gouged and scratched without ever passing out or crying.
6. Talk about only baby/kid related topics to my friends and baby for days on end without loosing my shit.
7. Get little to no sleep, for months on end, and not die of exhaustion.
8. Put myself and my needs second, and be thankful for it!
9.Cover up dark circles and luggage size under eye bags like a boss!
10. Love on a super human level.

I know there are some powers I am forgetting... But, it's the Super Powers I have yet to gain I am most excited for!  Oliver is only 11-months-old, imagine the Super Powers I will have when he is 5!
