Dear Son #1, #2, & #3,
Today I was informed (quite adamantly) that Paw Patrol are the coolest superheroes. I mean sure they are constantly saving the folks of Adventure Bay with their cool gadgets and remarkable team spirit but today I have some mind-blowing news for you. There is one type of superhero that is way cooler than any of the pup team:
That’s right kids, sorry to crush your dreams but moms are not only cooler but have way more super powers too. So step aside Marshall, Rubble, Chase, Rocky, Zuma and Skye: Mom has arrived.
There is nothing faster than a Mom when she hears “I have to [pee, poo, puke]” when they are [in bed, wearing a snowsuit, in the car]. Also, as I learned in recent experience, there is nothing faster than a Mom who is sitting on the toilet marveling at the 5 seconds she has to poop in peace when she hears the front door opening followed by: “William! Quick let’s go outside!”
There is nothing stronger than a Mom. Especially when it’s time to leave, she is being strongly disagreed with, and she’s very outnumbered. One Mom can carry up to three crying children and one diaper bag by sheer will alone. It’s an amazing sight to see. Don’t even get me started on how many bags of groceries one Mom can hoof into the house when it’s 15 minutes past feeding time.
There is nothing with more endurance than a Mom. Only Moms can handle a sleepless night followed by multiple explosive diapers and a messy “accident” while extracting a Hot Wheels car from her foot and making breakfast with the right colour cutlery. While recovering from the stomach flu.
There is nothing more patient than a Mom who can withstand watching her child get undressed, eat breakfast, zip up their coat, put on their boots, find their hat, get out the door, and into their car seat – ALL MYSELF MOMMY – when she needed to get everyone out of house three hours ago. (I’m not even going to talk about when you ask them to pass you the item that is 3 inches in front of their nose yet takes a full five minutes of, “there, no right there! No, turn a little, yup right there!” before you get it)
There is nothing more resilient than a Mom. She acquired you. Whether it was through giving birth or another way. It was tough but worth it.
So sorry boys, Paw Patrol may be there on the double but Mom will be there with fruit snacks, a fresh pair of underwear and an endless supply of hugs and kisses.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom superheroes!

I just want you to know that you are MY Super Hero! How you manage 3 young men and one large one is way beyond what I can comprehend. You always look lovely and have a smile on your face, never complain( outside of home anyway) about how much time you spend alone so Pieter Senior can make a comfortable living for your family.
You amaze me, every time I see a post on facebook or speak with either you or Pieter.
Those 4 men in your life are so lucky to have all the paw patrol wrapped up with all the other super hero’s in one person “MOM”
I hope your Mother’s day was as special as you are.
Love to you and your Menfolk….they are so luck and blessed
Thanks Gwen! XO
