Week 8 of 52: If I could Have One Superpower...


Time Manipulation...

There are many days that I wish I had a fast forward button, just to push through the laundry, cleaning the house or even a cranky baby, this is also followed by days that I could hit slow motion...moments like watching David and the girls play that are just so adorable it warms my heart.  But there are days I wish I had a rewind button, that I could go back to places I've been before and live those moments again, like days at my grandparents old farm just riding on the John Deere with my Grandpa.

I think everyone wishes they had more time, we all say "I just need an extra hour" or "I wish I had a pause button", the reality of that would be a very cool thought but I think it would get scary.  What if you just shut everything off, hit pause or fast forwarded through a milestone of life?  Like any super power this one especially would have to be looked after with extreme care because it could easily get out of hand.

Personally, I want FAST FORWARD for changing dirty diapers, doing laundry, cooking, cleaning and basically anything that's a "chore".  I want SLOW MOTION to enjoy the beautiful moments in being a wife and mom, all those days at the pool or play ground, even just rolling around on the floor at home, just to have a few more seconds to take those in would be amazing.  PAUSE, I'd only use in extreme conditions, like the kids are screaming and driving me nuts and I need a 2 minute break to clear my head and adjust or even be able to pause before Hannah runs to the street or I burn the biscuits.  REWIND to visit old memories. 

I don't think I'd ever hit STOP, that means my life would stop and I love my life, I don't ever have thoughts of leaving it or wanting to, it's me, it's who I am, it's everything that I love and every piece of me. 

Time manipulation...yup, that's one cool super power!
