If you had to choose one superpower, what would it be and why? My superpower would be the ability to freeze time! I would get more sleep, get my housework done, and have more time to snuggle my precious babies. Did I mention the whole more sleep part?! What’s your favorite comfort food? This is a little different, but on a bad day I love Ethiopian food! Veggie combo with some homemade cheese and that sour injera bread...yum!

Give 18-year-old you a piece of advice. Home management matters! Find a routine that works for you and stick with it.

If you had to choose one superpower, what would it be and why? If I had to choose one superpower I would pick teleportation. I don't actually enjoy driving, it takes to long, and sometimes other drivers scare me. If I could teleport then I could just hop on over to the mothers day out to pick up my son or even go to Europe without the cost and time of flying. What’s your favorite comfort food? Biscuits and gravy

If you had to choose one superpower, what would it be and why? I'm also on team teleportation! I would use it to go grocery shopping because I hate unloading the cart into my cart then unloading it once I'm home. We also live in the second story of our building so steps are my worst enemy. Btw I'm the one who does the shopping so I do it all by my lonesome What’s your favorite comfort food? Mexican, mainly chimichangas Give 18-year-old you a piece of advice. Decide what you're passionate about in life and try to make it your career.

If you had to choose one superpower, what would it be and why? My super power would be stopping a tantrum. I can easily predict them, but figuring out how to get one to end is another story. I've tried bribery, sweet talking, raising my voice, the list goes on. Nothing works!
