Our blogging group’s topic for this month is what superpower would you want to have?
Let me tell you, superheros & their powers are a big deal in this house. The Avengers, Marvel Superheros and the rest of them are often all I hear about from my 2 boys. When they start up with the swordplay, wrestling & imaginary battles; I’d like the “superpower” of selective deafness!
But in reality, I would love to have the superpower of slowing down time. Its true what they say about raising kids, the days are long & the years are short. I wish I could slow their growing up, enjoy it more. Not have to be worrying about homework sheets, reading logs, lunches, bed times; but to worry about hugging them more, enjoying them reading me a book instead of multitasking, just enjoying them playing.
I have a 7 year old, a 9 year old, a nearly 12 year old & a 14 year old. The days zoom by and I hope I haven’t wasted too much time. I have dear friends who have lost children & I often cry, thinking what they’d give for one of my ‘crappy days’ with their child. It makes me appreciate those ‘crappy days’ & want them to go slower.
But again, “all I can do – is all I can do” and I WILL do my best to stretch out those days & enjoy them no matter.
p.s. I’d also like time to slow down when I’m working in my studio! It always seems that I never have enough time to execute what I have in my head. My leaving work till the last minute wouldn’t be so last minute.
In this fabulous blogging group, we are given a topic to write on; we can mold it how we see fit & then everyone publishes their post at the exact same time on the 20th of each month! There are lots of different perspectives in this group, have a look at what everyone else said this month:
