There are many quotes and sayings about children, particularly little boys. They say little boys are like superheroes in disguise. But I think it’s the other way around. I think little boys make their mommy’s into superheroes. We can heal the worst of boo boos with our kiss. We can read their minds, and predict what will happen next. And because of them we can transport ourselves anywhere. Just today I was inside a blanket volcano, and because of my super powers I never got burned. Tomorrow I am promised a trip to Ninjago City. I am told it is fun and has slides, but first I must fight snakes. Being a superhero is hard work. I try to remember this when I have a difficult day with my son. That if I play my cards right, and keep fighting off the snakes for him, that one day when he’s older he just may trust in me enough to save him when he needs me. Just like he has saved me, over and over and over again.
