If my daughter is Supergirl, does that make me Supermom?

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

I hope so, though rarely do I feel like it. Yesterday morning I thought I had a chance at capturing the title. It started with waking up at 5:30a.m. to do a mini-workout before the girls got up. Amara woke up at 6:30am and Aya by 7am. By 9am I had them fed, dressed, and dishes washed. I was caffeinated, dressed, and even had time to eat a bite myself. I must have been feeling ambitious because I decided it was a perfect day to whip up a Supergirl cape for Aya.

A little back story… Aya comes home from DayCare constantly talking about playing “Supergirl.” What I’ve gathered so far is that Supergirl(s) go to a special school to  learn how to fight. They have power but when they die they have to wait for their power to come back. They work in conjunction with “Rodax” and “Bouncy Eyes” to fight bad guys. Bottom line is, I have no idea what she’s talking about. But I know she loves it and I thought I should try to take an interest in her interests.

Fast forward to Sunday. The girls’ eyes look a little pink, mind you I had JUST taken Amara in on Saturday to make sure she didn’t have an ear infection. We got the all clear but when I took the girls on Monday, sure enough, pink eye for both and an ear infection for Amara. This resulted in me staying at home with the munchkins for two days.

So back to Supergirl capes. I had some random scraps of fabric and began piecing together a cape for Aya then I realized that every superhero needs a sidekick so I figured I should make something up for Amara as well. Here was the result… be kind, I had about an hour and a half of work time while Aya watched “Alpha and Omega” (which I love by the way) and sewed half of them with Amara on my lap watching.

A couple side notes…. Although I started out strong in feeling like I could be the best mom ever, the evening ended with one random meal thrown together, the longest time-out ever,  and FINALLY some Francis Coppola Claret (FYI, I share this link and info cause I like it, not cause I’m a wine connoisseur) . On the upside, I consulted with my husband (the graphic designer) and the photo below may be the first time I’ve appropriately used Comic Sans. :)
