I always wanted superhero parents. They'd have x-ray eyes to see through my lies and know what I truly needed from them. Of course, they would fly to the rescue the instant I needed help, but not a second before. It wouldn't be a problem when I wanted them near, but didn't want my friends to know...they'd just stay invisible for a while. Their superhuman strength would take on all of my troubles and they would offer to turn back time when I needed a second chance.
The parents I had were all too human. They did the best they could being raised by their human parents. I come from a long line of all too human parents. Today my daughter learned a secret that I was hoping to hide a little longer - I am human and being human today wasn't enough. Today she needed a mom who could read her mind and give her what she needed, and not believe what she said. I let her down today and she let me know it. I have never seen her so mad at me before. I wish I could turn back time to the days when she thought I was Super Mom.
