Introducing "Supermom" trading cards. Create your own!

One supermom has the ability to play snakes and ladders while breast-feeding. Another can grab a yogurt-covered spoon just in the nick of time before it splats on the floor. A third boasts the uncanny ability to see anything going on behind her.

Those are just a few of the supermoms strutting their superpowers on Flickr in the Supermom Trading Cards Gallery. (Thanks to Mary Tsao on BlogHer for the tip.) Helene, whose blog is called Adventures in Parenthood, invites moms to create cards saluting themselves and their superpowers, and everyone else to create cards celebrating mothers, too. She hopes to get 100 cards up on Flickr by Mother's Day this Sunday.


It sure beats a tired-looking bouquet or any canned Hallmark sentiment. Details on how to make your own are here.
