some pics to enjoy:
these pics were taken the day before O’s best friend in England, E, presented him with a superhero cape with his initial sewn on the back for his birthday. For OPSEC reasons, I can’t show the cape, but it is awesome, and E’s mom said it only cost $11. I know she got it from Etsy, but I don’t know which seller. I have to find out though, to purchase back-up capes for O, as well as a couple for Y, because O does not take his off…ever (well, ok, maybe for baths, but that’s it). When I find out, I’ll pass that along, ’cause if you have a budding superhero girl or boy, these capes are a must! Anyhow, the ones in the pics are O’s security blankets (his “B”s).
O’s current favorite superhero is Larry Boy from the Veggie Tales people. The above was O’s approximation of Larry Boy’s outfit. We are trying really hard to convince him that he really does not need to put toilet plungers on his ears, like Larry Boy has. Thanks a million, Veggie Tales. Actually, thank you really Veggie Tales people, for creating a hero that I’m ok with my 3 year old watching and imitating (sans plungers).
Looking back over these pictures, it strikes me that for some reason, Y looks less like a superhero to me, and more like a frat boy halfway dressed for a toga party. O does make me think of a superhero, although one with a faintly Jimmy Buffet-ish air.
Almost forgot the naughty chair pics! So both kids are sitting in the naughty chair for hitting – each other of course. And the only reason O isn’t wearing the cape is because he’s in trouble.
