Parenthackers are the smartest people in the world – all of us are SuperParents! After my older son read The Extraordinary Adventures of Ordinary Boy we found that almost everyone we know has a super power. Parents especially! For example, today I am a SuperMom because I got little brother to nap even though Big Brother has a playdate.
Jill suggested we all share our Superpowers, which I think is fantastic for two reasons:
- It’s a fun counterpoint to all the Supermom discussions going on around Sarah Palin’s candidacy (including these smart comments by Parent Hacks readers)
- How often do we get to toot our own horns (let alone hear them tooted by someone else)?
So. Don’t be modest. Tell us your parenting superpower. I’ll chose one Superhero at random who will win a Get Buttoned Up care package including a Life.doc organizing binder and three nifty list pads: CatchUp.pad (for managing ships-passing-in-the-night syndrome with your partner), KidPack.pad (for remembering what to have on hand during the typical busy school day), and BabyPack.pad (for ALL THAT BABY GEAR YOU HAVE TO SCHLEP).
My superpower: Maintaining a calm demeanor in the face of juvenile explosion. Usually.
I’ll choose a winner on Wednesday evening 10/8 in the 8pm PST range. Have fun!
