Who Takes Care Of Super Mom?

Super Moms take care of everyone and everything around them. They remember birthdays. They kiss boo-boos. They make sure their families get plenty of fresh air, three servings of dairy and more antioxidants than you can shake a stick at. That’s all well and good, but who takes care of them? Who checks up on their caloric needs? Who asks about their obscure medical symptoms? Anyone?

Probably not. The problem with being a Super Mom is that everyone thinks you are invincible but, contrary to popular belief, you are not. None of us are. We break. We slow down. We get tired. We get sick.

Just like any creature, we need to take care of ourselves. I cannot begin to tell you how many times a Super Mom has skipped a meal. The cause is usually one of two things, either a small child decided that what was on Super Mom’s plate looked much more appetizing than his or her own and ate it. And, what mom would discourage that, kids need to eat. Or, equally distressing, Super Mom’s out and out forget to eat.

Just yesterday, I was feeling tired. It hit me like a ton of bricks. Boom. Instantly tired with a killer headache. I was moving like molasses and totally scatterbrained. My sister (because sister’s rock) asked me what I had for lunch. Hmmm… it was 3 p.m., lunch wasn’t that long ago. Yet, I couldn’t remember. So, she asked me what I had for breakfast. That was easy: coffee. So, in the 10 hours I had been running around that day, I had consumed nothing but my morning coffee. Not good. Super Sister took care of it, and me.

Don’t forget to take care of yourself and the other Super Moms you know.
