After I finally saw the Wonder Woman movie, I got to thinking about how her magical powers would benefit moms everywhere. I propose the following upgrades to her super powers for Wonder Mom, the everyday heroine.
Wonder Mom's bracelets
The bracelets deflect bullets -- as well as sarcasm, judgment from other moms and evil glares at the grocery store when your children have a meltdown because they can't eat the entire candy aisle.
- Wonder Mom's costume
Obviously, the costume needs a few tweaks for practicality's sake. Let's face it, a strapless leather bustier and miniskirt is not going to work. Instead, I propose a romper that is machine washable and includes a nursing bra. Perhaps a two-piece option with a skort could also work.
- Wonder Mom's Lasso of Truth
The lasso could be downsized to fit in a purse or diaper bag, but comes in handy for tricky situations when both children blame broken objects or the dog. However, the lasso should be used on husbands or partners sparingly.
- Wonder Mom's invisible plane
The plane didn't make it into the movie, but comic book readers should be familiar with Wonder Woman's favorite form of transportation. The invisible plane makes any commute a breeze, but car seats will have to be installed for safety.
