The Day That I Was Super Mom

Most days I don't claim to be "Super Mom," but I do have my moments. One of my favorite recent moments happened last week at Maggie's preschool.

I hadn't planned on arriving at the preschool early so that I could stalk (I think our kids deserve a little parent-free time at preschool) Maggie as she rode her bike for "Bike & Trike Day". Of course, I heard at drop off that several of the other parents were planning on being there to cheer on their child and take pictures. I decided that I didn't want Maggie to worry that I was the only mom not there, so Ellie and I spent an hour and a half goofing off and killing time to avoid driving home, staying a few minutes and then driving back to preschool. Of course, this meant I was camera-less.

Ellie fell asleep while we were driving back to school, so I decided to stay in the car (stalker style) and wait for the kids to come out and get their bikes. I saw the kids getting their bikes and I plopped Ellie on my hip, safe and secure in the ring sling and joined the class and their entourage.

The adults-
  • Mr. R- father
  • Mr. T & Ms. D-parents and C, who is a week younger than Ellie
  • Ms. C
  • Ms. N- Maggie's teacher
  • Me & Ellie
There were 8 children, 4 bicycles, 2 tricycles, 1 Big Wheel and 1 scooter.

Of course, one of the girls didn't want to ride her bike (Thank You dear Lord for letting it not be my daughter) so her parents, Mr. T and Ms. D had to try to get her to ride. Ms. D had brought her big, nice camera and was trying to take pictures while holding Baby C. Mr. T was holding his now crying daughter and trying to talk her into riding her tricycle. I was wearing Ellie so I had two free hands and offered to hold Baby C. I managed to push at least FIVE of the children on their bikes...WHILE WEARING/HOLDING TWO BABIES! That left Ms. C, Mr. R and Ms. N standing at the other end of the little bike course doing nothing.

And that is all about the hour that I was Super Mom.

I bet the kids loved you for it all too! They might even wish they had moms just like you. Hope the bike and trike day was an overall success.
