Special Super Power

Can you think of a moment in your life when you felt thoroughly validated?

Here's mine:  I was getting ready to park in front of our house (we don't have off-street parking) when I noticed a car behind me.  I'd have to park quickly, I knew, so I did the parallel parking thing and NAILED IT.

As the car passed me, the driver--a teenage boy--gave me two thumbs up because yeah.  I won't lie.  I was impressive and we both knew it.

That's my special super power--parallel parking.  As one of my boys said, "Mom is oddly good at that."

What's YOUR special super power?

Emily's is bagging groceries. She gets compliments all the time from teenage, peach fuzzed grocery store attendants.

I am awesome at knowing what size of container will fit the leftovers perfectly.

Sadie already said mine. It's true. I'm super at bagging groceries. Also, pancakes. I can make amazing pancakes.

Sadie is super good at ironing. Once, and this is truth, she got blisters from ironing her husband's shirts. I think they go to the dry cleaner now.

I have two super powers: one is identifying the celebrity voices in TV ad voiceovers. The other is picking out a perfectly ripe watermelon.

Not really sure if i have a super power, but I wouldn't mind having any of those listed above, including parallel parking. If I had to choose, I guess I am decent at throwing odd bits and chunks of food inside a flour tortilla and making a burrito out of it.
