cape wearing mom and family


I’m not super mom, but wearing a cape makes life so much more fun. I not only have an authentic cape in my closet, I wear it proudly.

Whether it’s a home improvement project taking over our life, a college daughter injured while attempting a selfie (long story that is SO blog worthy), or a marketing strategy discussion at work (ask my team about the dolphin costume), this mom uses what I like to call my God-given talents to make life interesting.  I spill things even when I’m extra careful. I trip over my own two feet walking on flat ground. (My husband simply shakes his head and extends his hand.)  My mama should have probably named me Lucy. Bless her heart.

My family adore (OK, tolerate) my sense of humor and there are those who say my enthusiasm is contagious. (Is that like a disease?) Yet my detail-oriented nature takes vacation planning to a whole new level. My super power is identifying restrooms in a moment’s notice. I know the location of the bathroom in nearly every establishment in town and on each exit of I-95 in three states. But do not get me started on TP etiquette. (What makes changing the toilet paper roll so hard for people?)

My husband soars through these adventures with me sometimes shaking his head and sometimes ordering holiday themed sunglasses with detachable mustaches. Yes on purpose. #twopeasinapod

Through it all, God uses the unusual, hilarious and sometimes humiliating moments of my life to reveal something important. Sometimes it’s motivational and sometimes its correction and other times it’s just plain funny. Now I’m off to save the day and most likely create a scene somewhere. Follow the laughter and you’ll find me. #missiontoprosecutethosewhodontchangetheTP

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.  Proverbs 3:5-6

Totally love the picture and I have the same shirt from Loft! Ha ha! Now I have to make a cape. I just started a blog last week and am looking for other mom blogs with a sense of humor.
