This morning, Medium Boy beckoned me over and stage-whispered

"Come, Mama, I have a secret to tell you...."

He sat himself on my lap, lifted the flap of hair that covered my right ear and murmured

"I want to be Superman.  I will wear the Angry Bird tee shirt, long pants and stick straws into my socks, so that I can be Superman ok"

Hmm.  This seems to be a continuing conversation that started in December.  Tonight I shall ask him why he wants to be Superman.


  1. so why did he want to be superman??

  2. He wants to be a good guy, save the world... The straws in shoes are to help him run very fast (I suppose he pretends they are propellars!!)
