Obviously all of us on here are pretty awesome. Heroes, I'd say. Superheroes, in fact.
So lets hear it: what is YOUR superpower? (For the few among us who don't have one, its OK, you can make one up, but make it interesting!)
Fey, you go first! ;)

I'm able to leap small curbs at a single bound, and can run faster than a stopped train! Ta-da!

No, actually DH calls me Daredevil. I'm blind as a mole (okay, not that bad, but pretty useless without my glasses), and my other senses have heightened because of it.

I have a horribly keen sense of smell (not always a good thing), and I can hear at very low frequencies. If DH's cell phone vibrates in the kitchen, it will wake me in my upstairs (closed door) bedroom. If we're in a noisy restaurant, I have to tell him when he has a call--and the phone is in his own damn pocket!

3rd cycle was the charm (despite everything going wrong)!

LMAO Fey!!!!

Neat idea!

I have eagle eyes!!! I can see all the little crumps left after DH vaccums the house or all the little missed spots after he paints or does anything else! Now he invites me to his job site to do this on his employees...I think it's curse within a gift ;)

We rolled the dice and got lucky on our last ditch "close the door" cycle and have a beautiful little girl. April 2014 - Had the crazy notion to try for another. Shocked with a BFP, miscarried @ 8W6D. See my "about me" page for more cycle details.

Considering I am infertile, it's kind of a crappy gift, but I can tell when someone is pregnant and the sex of their baby before they even know they are pregnant just by looking at them or talking to them. I have been right for the last 15 of 15 babies.

I am blessed (?cursed) with the morning person gene. I am awake every morning by 6:00 no matter what time i go to bed. Whether I am a nice person the next day after 2 hours of sleep is a whole other issue.

After a wild and crazy ride on the treatment train, our baby GIRL arrived on Jan 6, 2012
Hold on.... Surprise spontaneous just 7 months postpartum while still breastfeeding!!! Baby boy born May 2, 2013

I have two.

I can spot a spelling mistake in anything, even if I'm not really reading it or the part where the mistake is, it leaps off the page at me. (Why did I not become an editor, you ask? Good question!)

And I can recognize actors in movies or TV shows no matter how different they look and if I can't tell you where I know them from, I can tell you what role they played in whatever it was until we figure it out. For example, "She was in a cop show, she played someone's daughter, married to the bad guy, they had a dog...", that kind of thing. (maybe it's not that unusual, but my husband sucks at it, so it's a super power in this house!)
