Why Moms Are Superheroes

by Tina @ Life Without Pink on January 23, 2013

There is something magical that happens when you become a mother. You sense danger, you will do anything to protect your young, you develop a tough stomach and can go without sleep for days.

Some may call it survival mode but I call it just being a “mom.”

Yes, us moms can be superheroes too. We may not be saving people from burning buildings or fighting crime in the streets, but we do have a tough job, honestly one of the toughest jobs there are. We have many titles and perform numerous tasks on any given day.

To me, a “superhero mom” is a woman that:

Being a superhero mom is not about being a perfect mom – there is no such thing. It’s about doing what you feel is best for yourself and your family.

She is someone who her children look up to and in their eyes “she is their superhero!”

What do you think a superhero mom is?

Equally important is knowing when to back down and get some much-needed rest and relaxation! Even superheroes sleep :) For me, being a superhero means that I’m doing things now for my kids I never, ever thought I’d do: like ditching fast & packaged foods and cooking 3 meals a day – superhealthy stuff. Like rethinking and reconsidering what will strengthen their brain, improve their behavior, and heal their health issues while still having an awesome childhood that they can remember fondly.

Love your list and I totally agree! Biggest part about being a Superhero Mom is giving up things and making better choices for your family. Thanks for stopping by!

The superhero mama knows how to find balance in life and handle it all with grace. I’m still striving for that super hero status! :)

Haha we are all in that department! A superhero mom knows she can’t possibly do it all! :)

This made me smile. I like thinking of myself as a superhero mom, instead of just a tired one. ;)

I think we’re all superheros in our own way for sure. Sometimes just getting through the day in one piece makes me feel like one.

I love this! Honestly, I don’t know if there is anything that I could add that you haven’t already touched on!

We are all super heros!
