supermom

noun; compounding
The stereotypical overachiever mom that is actively involved in everything. The mom that strives to be the perfect wife, mother, employee, and community member.

"Supermom" is a compound of the words "super" and "mom," possibly derived from the word "superman," a supernatural human being that is capable of anything. It is an endocentric term referring to the mother that can do it all.
Etymology : Formed by compounding Latin word "super," meaning above, and mom.
