When I was a little kid, I always slept well at night just knowing my mom was down the hall. I knew that no matter what happened, mama would take care of it.
Now that I'm a mom of three, I tend to have a lot of angst. I worry and fester over everything - wondering if I've done the right thing, made the right decision - from the basics to the complicated. Nighttime is when it seems to peak. Many a sleepless night has occurred due to this brain of mine that mulls and ponders and considers and never seems to slow down.
Turns out, I have no reason to worry. I'm totally safe and protected. I've got not one, not two, but three superheroes just across the hall, ready to step in at a moments notice to fend off any evil characters that might make their way into our home.
So I can rest easy and sleep in peace at night, knowing that any of these superheroes is happily willing to ensure my safety.
Don't you wish you could be so lucky??
