I feel super!

I'm back with another Monday Listicle Challenge from Stasha over at Northwest Mommy - did you know she's famous now? This week she challenged us to write a listicle about feeling like a superhero. Since most days I feel like I just scraped through by the skin of my teeth if all three boys made it to bed and no one was seriously injured that day, this one took some pondering for me!

10 THINGS THAT MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A SUPERHERO

1. Birthing my three kiddos. C section or not, having a baby makes you a superhero.

2. Every night at bedtime Max tells me, "You're awesome, Mom!" in his baby 3 year old voice. 

3. Going to the grocery store with three boys in tow and leaving with actual food to feed my family, and no one is lost/crying/in need of medical aid.

4. When we're cropping and someone needs a brad/ribbon/scrap of specific paper and I have it! I'm not a hoarder, I'm a scrappin' hero!

5. Every day between 2-3 p.m. when I manage to get still mostly napping baby into the car and pickup the brothers at their respective schools in two different towns armed only with tired-over-stimulated-tantrum-killing snacks and the ability to hear the same knock knock joke 80 million times without screaming. Knock Knock. Who's there? Interrupting . Interrupting...BURRRRP! 

6. Canning enough tomatoes to last my family through the winter! 

7. Finding the missing toy/sock/croc/wallet/whatever that no one else can see. Apparently I have X-Ray vision, too.

8. When my endless love of blog reading leads me to cook a dinner that my family loves beyond reason. This week it was this three ingredient teriyaki chicken, which I made gluten free with coconut aminos. Picky oldest son ate two servings and left the rice on his plate. 

9. When my kiddos' teachers tell me how nice and polite the boys are....it's good to know they are well behaved for someone!

10. I just found out this week I was selected to teach at Extravaganza at CTMH's convention this summer. I knew they were only picking 18 teachers this year, so even though I'd applied I really didn't think I could make it for such a small group. I've been feeling like I'm flying ever since I got the notice...and that's definitely a SUPER feeling!

Woo Hoo! Congratulations! But, really, was there any doubt that you would make it in to teach? Your work is stunning and you use so many neat techniques. Hopefully I'll get to sit in on your class.

I made it in Studio J - I love how many paper choices we have there!

I was actually really surprised, Krista. When I heard they were only picking 18...I figured I'd just have more time to enjoy WDW!

"C-section or not" AMEN. You sound pretty impressive to me!

My kid is forever losing something that is in plain sight.
