You know something I had always thought was kind of cool about superheros? They have a theme song. Or a “take off song”. Right when trouble would arise they could throw open their shirts and take off to some glorious music. “Dun-dah-dah-daun” and off they went. As a Mom of now three, a business owner and a list of other stuff I feel the need to tackle and master….I need a dang theme song. Not because I feel I am super important just something that I can hear when life gets too much. No one else needs to hear it, sort of like an internal fight song to keep me going. So when I throw open my shirt to reveal my fabulous sparkly Superwoman logo….I get music. I would like mine to have a nice back beat though please.
Moms feel we need to be Super People? I mean it’s like there is an unsaid expectation that we will juggle everything in life, stay attractive to our spouses, manage the household chaos, be fun to the kids, make sure the baby isn’t rolling off of something, keep everyone fed, do the “parental homework” the school seems to feel we need, be a taxi, keep the pets alive and loved and then do this all with grace and composure. I mean I gladly take the roll of a woman, it’s beats the alternative most days but I wish that it all came with some theme music. That is all I am saying. A little “dun-dah-dah-dun” in the background of life.
