If I Could Have One Superpower... {52 Weeks of Blogging With a Purpose}



As a mom, superpowers would certainly come in handy wouldn't they? X-ray vision to keep an eye on the little man from a different room (and to quickly scan for that missing shoe!). Super hearing to know what he's up to when he's being mysteriously quiet. Super fast speed to keep up with that crazy amount of energy he always seems to have. All of these superpowers would be extremely handy! But if I only choose one superpower, it would be the power to read my child's mind!

Shaun's mind is absolutely amazing...he constantly has me in awe of his memory, his knowledge and just the brilliance he has allowed us to see... and I know there is so much more in there that we have yet to be shown. I would love to see the world through his eyes for just one day, to understand how his mind works and why he does certain things he does! I am certain I would be amazed at what I saw!

But aside from exploring his mind, it would come in useful in many other ways too. While Shaun has come a long way with his communication since our journey with Autism began, it is still a struggle for him. We are still often left wondering what he means with the things he says. They just don't always make sense! This can lead to frustration and confusion all around!! There are many days when I find myself thinking that if only I could read his mind, I'd know exactly what to do to avoid the meltdowns and to help him adjust! Then I could truly be a Supermom to my little man!

If you could have any superpower, which one would you choose? How would having superpowers make you a better mom (or wife...or woman)?
