I’m a Single Mom. What’s Your Super Power? Heather Hopson June 11, 2015 Uncategorized This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #V8EnergyBoost #CollectiveBias Dear Diary, When I became a single mother, I became a super hero. I received special powers long before my baby was born. Super strength and super courage enabled me to carry another human being inside my stomach for nine plus months. I don’t recall any comic book characters possessing this amazing ability. After giving birth, I transformed into a more gentle, kindhearted and selfless person; all adjectives used to describe Superman at one time or another. Well, I was that way when my hormones weren’t raging! Instead of a cape, I wore a nursing bra. And instead of Superman’s signature forehead curl, I sported a mommytail. And since motherhood is tiring–correction, it’s exhausting, I need a boost from time to time. I’m working, single mom with two babies–one thats a preschooler and the other that’s a business. I often sacrifice sleep. So V8 V-Fusion + Energy is my equivalent to Kryptonite and allows me to be a supermom when I need to save the day. Heck, when I need to just make it through the day. V8 V-Fusion + Energy give you the boost you need to get through your busy day. The delicious energy drink is powered by natural green tea, which means it has a delicious fruit flavor not an artificial medicinal taste. The nutritious, 50 calorie (per 8 ounce serving) drink gives you power to compete with the most energetic comic characters. The single serve cans (sold in a 6-pack) can be found on the shelf-stable juice aisle. Batman Batman may combat crime in Gotham City, but he’s no match for mothers fighting off germs, strangers and other dangers on a daily basis. The Caped Crusader’s sidekick, Robin, runs in the opposite direction when face-to-face with our army of supporters made up of grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Superman Superman is known for his super strength, however single moms use their mega muscles to stretch a dollar beyond belief. They pay their mortgage, electric, water, cable and grocery bills, and then get back change. They use their coupon clipping powers to stock their shelves with big bargains. Superman can see through objects with his X-ray vision, and supermoms can see through their children when they lie about completing a homework assignment, eating their broccoli or cleaning their rooms. Green Lantern Some moms may not have a ring on their finger like this superhero, but we do have a force field stronger than the Green Lantern’s. Our embrace protects our children from harm. Our hugs and kisses transfer affection onto our little ones. The Flash The fastest man alive moves at a snail’s pace when racing super moms. We cook, clean and carpool at the speed of light, and apply makeup, shower and change clothes in the blink of an eye. We’ve also been known to swoop in before children fall down, scrape their knees or break bones. Aquaman Aquaman can communicate with sea life, but single moms can speak an ever more complex language: co-parent-ese. They bite their tongues, manage conflicts and promote peace–all while raising kids under separate roofs. With impenetrable skin like Aquaman’s, an ex’s rude remarks roll off a single mom’s back. You know what other power I possess? The ability to make Walmart gift cards to appear out of thin air!
