When I hear the term Super Mom I think of many amazing women that I've had the opportunity to know and love. I think a lot of moms are pretty super in their own rights Yet, there is one very special mommy who stands out as a definite Super Mom!
My sister - Kelly.
Kelly is the kind of mom who has endless energy and ideas. Her children and family are her life and her priority. She is a mom which won't be seen on the sidelines at any time during her children's lives. I've watched my little sister find her calling in motherhood.
I really feel that Kelly epitomizes the term Super Mom. How many new moms can say that they packed up her house and moved from the United States to Canada while being post postpartum? How many moms can say that they cared for a newborn, a two year old and packed up a house to move countries while being postpartum? My sister, Kelly can!
Two years ago, right after Kelly's son was born, she and her family only had a few weeks to be moved out of their home, as it was rented. They were moving into my parent's basement in Ontario, so her husband could attend teacher's college to pursue his lifelong dream of being a teacher.
Anyone who has ever had a newborn understands the complete exhaustion, now couple that with recovering from giving birth, packing up a house, and caring for a toddler and you've got an unbelievable situation. Kelly rose to the challenge and kept her cool, and I think she earned the title Super Mom!
Maybe you know a Super Mom too!
