Mom's away. Dad doesn't know. Nana is in town. Now what?


1.Mommy is out of town

2.Daddy doesn't know mommy's quest to keep all commercial characters on pjs, swim trunks & undies only.
Oh, the number of times I have diverted his attention to the just plain lion (not Simba) or monkey (not George) shirt.
Oh, the ways I've created enthusiasm over a preppy hoodie from GapKids-he even started calling them "Yoda hoods".

3.Daddy laughs at mommy's aversion to lightup tv character shoes & primary colored comic book character hats.

4.Nana is in town.

5.A simple trip to Target, armed with her own wallet combined with the bright-blue-eyed-3-year-old-grandson-she-hardly-sees, who is all too privy to what "I want that!" said to Nana means as compared to said to his parents.
6. He couldn't be happier.

7. Now what?

I still can't believe he even LIKES these comic book guys. He'd never seen a cartoon or read a book, yet he has been drawn to them for over a year now.
No older cousins or siblings around to blame. Daddy has certainly perpetuated his affection for all things super-powered with the affirmitave, testosterone-charged, grunt, "yeah".
Still, he responded to them from just 2 years old as if he'd known them since birth.
Of course I know Spiderman, mom.
Strange.
