I will forevermore dazzle my friends at play dates and freshman mixers now that I’ve come up with the best superpowers ever. I want a highly-directional periscopic nose and extendible lips. These are powers I never would have dreamed of until becoming a mother. [read more at Parenting.com]

I’d settle for eyes in the back of my head.
I’m convinced that my peripheral vision has doubled since I became a mother. You crack me up, Kathryn!
Those air pockets can be brutal. So insidious and hard to detect.
I would have the super power of time travel.
I could go back and relive my son’s babyhood, I could correct any parenting mistakes, and I could prevent boo-boos!
But that nose idea is a good one. We have definitely had moments where we’ve lowered the crib rail and leaned over to sniiiiiiff.
OK frankly the nose thing….NOOOOOO! Unless of course I could also use it to extend the nose out into the window and breathe in the fresh smelling air…closer proximity to the poop, no thank you. But what am I saying at this point in the family planning career this would mostly come in handy to avoid post potty explosive smell from my husband. Not that that’s a bad thing.

That sounds like my boy! I think I’d take those stretchy lips too! But the nose? Well, lets just say the stinck is soo bad that I don’t even want to go in the room much less to his bed! So I try to pretend I don’t know. Ha!
As far as my super powers? My kids and I loove this topic!
I always try to think of something cool, but I think my favorite would be remote control powers… you know fast forward yucky times, pause the good, turn down the volume…WAAAAAYY DOWN! All that jazz!
