super hero thursday

so, last thursday was super hero day. what? you didn't hear? well, we did. it started with a white pillow case, which i told thomas was a cape. then i showed him how cool it was to run with a cape on, like a super hero. then we added some red lipstick (i knew there was a reason i bought red lipstick!) to his forehead. a red T, for thomas. the T was later changed to a star, which he loved even more, and wanted to look at in the mirror about 20 times. we added some lightning bolts to his cheeks, which were smeered by tiny hands in about 5 seconds. the T got smeered too, but was still cute, so we left it. we decided he needed a wand...so we transformed the paper towl rod with some stars and streamers. he had a great time runing around outside, and it was so cute that i had to take some pictures. i love my little super hero. i especially loved that he insisted on wearing his moccasins. those cute little moccasins cost me about 50 cents at a garage sale a few weeks back, and were worth every penny....thomas loves them! so here is my super hero, in all his super hero glory. his bike became his super hero transportation, with moccasins of course. it started raining, which we both secretly loved. but, going back in for a star-shaped super hero lunch kept my little hero happy. p.s. he ate about 3 tomatoes with his lunch. who wants pb&j when you can eat tomatoes? he is definitely my son. we both think tomatoes are the fruit of the earth. he did enjoy the star shaped sharp cheddar...also one of my favorites. stars are sub par, due to the fact that i cut them freehand with a dull steak knife...but super heros aren't about perfection. at least mine isn't. i wish he could be two forever. at least for now i do.

note: thomas' cute bike was only $15 plus shipping (which i believe was $8). it is hardwood and steel. on the company website they sell for about $60 plus shipping. but, there is a sweet man that buys them in bulk, and sells them on ebay for $15. it's amazing. the bike is so fantastic! it comes new in a box, and you put it together...which takes all of 10 min. i even wrote my first ever thank you letter to an ebay seller after we received the bike in the mail. i was just so happy, and so thankful that we could buy thomas such a cute bike for his birthday. what a nice man, right? if you want one, let me know, and i will let you know where we got it. definitely worth $15. actually, in all honesty, it's worth $60.
