Being a Parent: If You Were A Comic Book Character Who Would You Be?

Being a ParentI am just wondering. Seriously. Being a parent, or not even.. If you were a comic book character, who would you be? And I do NOT mean a pre-existing character. 

Yes, I just essentially told you that you may not be the Hulk. So there. Do NOT Hulk smash your keyboard in frustration. YOU have to be more creative than to just pick a pre-existing character and be done with it.. where’s the fun in that?

I like to think that if I were to have my own comic book.. It would be called: Ninja Mommers… Tales of a Ninja Mommy, Hence the website name and all. 

Of course, it would be a comic book filled with clumsy and awkward fights with the evil stairs that are determined to jump up and bite me, my adventures with the kids and dogs, and of course my long standing fight to master the art of stealth in order to poop alone. 

I would clearly be Ninja Mommers… Hi, nice to meet you. My comic book character is a master in the art of going to bed early, a black belt in the consumption of mass amounts of coffee, and an epic leader when it comes to singing bedtime songs to Children to lull them to sleep. Ninja Mommers is also very experienced when it comes to fighting the villainous stairs, that seem to be under the impression that if they move, and trip her up… she will never notice. The stairs have become a continuous enemy to Ninja Mommers, and have in fact, defeated her a few times; leaving scars that will never fully heal. The day will come, however, when Ninja Mommers will exact her revenge upon those stairs. Oh yes, she will. 

Ninja Mommers is a Mother first and foremost, ensuring that her children are safe from the evils of too much sugar and protected from the depths of their darkened closets. Ninja Mommers spends a mass amount of time using her Ninja strength to play with her Children and can often be found with a child grabbing onto her leg, a spatula in one hand, two dogs close by and a 5 year old singing “what does the fox say” in the background, all while the exhaust fan from above the stove, blows her unruly hair in the wind. 

If I were a comic book character, I can’t say that sounds half bad! I mean, it sounds better than the legends of a drunken master version of myself from 8 years ago… right?

    I still stand by my Facebook comment about stress being a super power, I think some positivity has to come from it, right? 😛

    If I were a comic book character, I would be one with super powers like Super Woman or Wonder Woman. The character would have to wear a turquoise outfit, which is my favourite colour.

    If I were a super hero that does not currently exist, I would be one that has the ability to clone myself so I could be in more places at the same time, or one that does not require sleep!
