Channel your inner ninja

Posted by   + Show Post

Lately, my kiddo is all about being ninja-like...stealth, super-skilled, able to maneuver through tough situations with aplomb. Okay, specifically, she's into being a ninja kitty, but that is a long story. Regardless, I have ninjas on the brain and I'm thinking that is a good thing.

Right, it sounds odd, but stay with me here. I'm trying to remember just how ninja-esque I am on any given day, just doing "mom things." I am a ninja mom. I know the locations of 399 minuscule plastic toys ("In the second cubby from the left, in the pullout white bin, with all of those bottle caps."). I can fold 23 pairs of leggings, make dinner and oversee homework all at the same time. I can pack a lunch in 44 seconds flat. I deftly explain the subway ads about sexually transmitted diseases without totally loading my five-year-old with information that is waaaaay beyond her years.

Yes, I am a ninja...and so are you. We are all ninjas -- wielding love, forgiveness, and guidance, helping our kids through this world. When the tasks get a little "same old, same old", visualize yourself as that ninja - masterful and skilled. Feel free to whisper "Ninja!" after you get the kids to bed with only three calls for juice and blanket adjustments. 

Share little things do you do that make you feel masterful and ninja-like!

I feel like a ninja when I lay down with my baby to get him to sleep & then sneak away and he stays asleep.

Haha I would have to say driving everyone in this family to all these different places on the same day at different times. Literally an 8 hour day of driving.

I felt ninja-ish yesterday ... when I was able to get DD 17 from school to the store to pick up stuff to make cupcakes, get her home & run out to get the other kids while she started baking. Then get her to the school farm to feed her calf & drop her and her cupcakes off at a friends for a bday dinner.. run home cook dinner and feed the other 2 then get back to the friends before it was time to sing Happy Bday to the birthday girl & watch her open gifts LOL..... and this all happened in a 4hr time period LOL.....
