Who you gonna Call?

(two robins with chocolate covered faces!)

Sunday Scribblings!...
Super hero brings TWO things immediately to this mama's mind!
my first two Boys! When they were small they had a costume draw FILLED with superhero costumes and each day I was never sure WHICH alter ego's name I had to use. Once while out to dinner, we ran into clients and introduced them to our sons and our eldest corrected me and said "that's NOt my name, my name is Bruce Banner!".. (he was feeling like the 'hulk' that day)
I was always at the flea market picking up inexpensive Green or black tights for my SONS! I remember it striking me VerY odd one day and I questioned if this was appropriate for me to be encouraging them to dress up in girls tights while sporting leather armor, masks and plastic weapons! I decided it was perfectly normal and when Ghost busters became their new passion, I even got them the full length ghostbuster jump suits that their New heros wore. They went EVERYWHERE in those beige jumpsuits along with backpack! (this next photo courtesy of google) I was only able to wash them when they got their batman pjs on and went to sleep!!
When my younger son came along the two older guys had already stopped 'dressing up' but that didn't stop all three of my sons from Always being superhero's in this mama's heart!

You will surely hold the memory of your little superheroes in your heart for a very long time. They may wish you had a shorter memory in due course when the pictures are shown to their girlfriends and wives.

Great post.

no heros are better than children with smiles like those.

Haha - that is so cute! Our nephews have a toy box filled with nothing but dress up clothes - sometimes they put on moon boots, other times it is a boa - you just never know what is going to strike their fancy from day to day!

Oh man, you bought them Ghostbusters gear!?! How cool! YOU were Supermom, Miss Lucy.

Wait, did you make them wear their winter coats over their costumes when they went out? :)
