One word. Five minutes. Ready?
His daddy carries him through the house with a cape on his back and a mask over his eyes. A bandana completes the ensemble.
My two year old super hero is flying on his belly, with his arms stretched out.
Later, he comes running through the kitchen and says “Watch me fly, mommy!”
“You’re such a good flier!” I say, between the dirty pots and pans.
“Yes! And I’m good at opening doors too!”
Hey, when you’re two, even opening up doors requires super powers.
He’s also good at making mommy laugh. And chasing baby brother around the house, over and over and over again they run, giggling constantly. He’s my sweet boy, my sweet and snuggly one.
His other super hero skills include completely overcoming a rare lung defect and having zero consequences from newborn lung surgery. He’s my one and a half lung wonder.
He’s also great at avoiding peanuts and cashews, his kryptonite. And he’s always got his EpiPen nearby, just in case. Even heroes need some help sometimes.
What are your kids’ super powers?
