Even though Mommy may not feel like the superhero the world makes her out to be, her children see through different lenses. And I think upon closer observation, they will notice Mommy has some rather amazing powers.

We've all heard the term: "Super Mom." What exactly makes her "super"? Can you really put her in the same category as Captain America, Wonder Woman, or Superman? Perhaps you've cringed at being addressed as a SuperMom. You wonder how you could rightfully claim such a title, being well aware of your non-kryptonite-induced weaknesses and failures.

But even though Mommy may not feel like the superhero the world makes her out to be, her children see through different lenses. And I think upon closer observation, they will notice Mommy has some rather amazing powers.

Her kisses make the booboo's go away.

There's just something about Mama's kisses and cuddles that make all owies better. But even if a cut needs a little more TLC, Mommy seems to have a magical way of cleaning the wound and applying the perfect bandage.

She can produce a sweet treat at lightning speed.

Who can resist chocolate chip cookies? But how does she make them so fast? Little do her children know that she's got tubes of dough stored in the freezer. But wait till she becomes a grandma ... she'll have the power to pull out all kinds of sweet stuff out of her purse to spoil any crying kid.

She can see from the back of her head.

She's at the sink, washing dishes. So how did she know her little angel was trying to sneak a cookie out of the jar? Somewhere behind that tangled updo, she's got a pair of eyes that never sleep.

She makes books come to life.

When she opens a book and reads, she transports her children to another world, where rhyming is normal, animals talk, and happy endings are guaranteed.

She knows. Before they can come up with an answer, she knows.

Don't get caught in a mind game with her. She knows what her kids will do before they do it. And I would warn against any attempts of falsification. She's a walking lie detector!

With one look, she can make her kids do what she wants.

Is there some invisible force behind those eyes? Maybe the secret is in that one raised eyebrow, hypnotically bringing her kids under her control.

Her tickling fingers have the power to render her kids helpless.

No, not the fingers! Must get away from them! They are worse than Kryptonite! And when she starts dispensing zerberts (aka, raspberries) on the tummies, it's all over for these kids!

Hey, SuperMoms, what's your favorite super power?
