Superwoman Magic

I love how my kids think that I am Superwoman. They seem to think that they can sit 50 feet away from me and that I am able to inspect a wound, bug, speck of dust from that far away. I keep telling them that I don't have super sonic vision. In their mind I DO have super sonic vision. This makes me laugh because I wear contacts every day and glasses at night when I am tired of the contacts.

I truly enjoy how kids believe anything you tell them when they are young. I especially love how they are like a "sponge" and soak everything they see and hear into their brains and beings and learn so much from it. The fun part of being a parent when they are that young and impressionable is that you can pull the wool over their eyes and they don't even know it. When my kids asked me a question that I didn't have an answer to I always reverted to "Magic".....that was my answer, my explanation for the unknown.

Even better is when their brains mature and they get it. "Magic" means mom doesn't know. It was hysterical when Luke discovered that I didn't know the answer to what ever question being asked. He took one look at me with a knowing look and said "Magic, huh?" Had a good laugh with that one.

If I could be a super hero I think Superwoman with a bit of Magic would be the best combo. Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

Ha! My kids think I have supersonic hearing. They try and talk to me from a different floor of the house, while I have water running and a crying baby over my shoulder.

Suzi, you know you have supersonic hearing. You just have to have it with boys! We know you are Superwoman with all your running and workouts you do.

You mean the "magic" answer stops working at some point? The horror!

Grand Pooba said...

Wait. Does this mean my mom isn't really magic?

Kids. You just gotta love 'em! ;) You are a Super Mom, that's for sure!

Ohhhh, I love using the word "magic".
Niece: "Auntie, the computer wont work"
So I plug the cord back in the power strip.
Niece in amazement: "Wow! how did you do that?"
Auntie: "Magic, my dear, magic!"
