How to Be a Superhero

As you know, the muppets lead not-so-secret lives as superheroes. Of course they have their secret identities. Don’t all the superheroes? Because really, who wants the pressure of being super all the time? (It’s hard being a million dollar miracle muppet.)

Much like the secret life of any superhero, certain situations call for the supersuit. (“Honey?! Where’s my supersuit? … Because I need it!”) And it is then that our hero perseveres – even in the face of a villain trying to thwart them of their powers.

Earlier this morning…

Me: It’s raining! (It’s been a rainy week.) That means they can wear their jackets today. Yay!

Jon: Those are ridiculous.

Me: No. They are awesome.

Jon: <Shakes head. Comprehends that there is NO way he’s going to talk me out of this particular fashion decision.>

Me: Better than your hobo suit.

Destroy: Batman! <Runs to jacket.>

Me: See?

Search: Noooo! <Runs to other side of room.>

Jon: See?

Me: They. Are. Adorable.

Jon: Fine but we’re taking off the capes.

Me: I can’t believe you’re taking off the capes.

Jon: I can’t believe you’re making them wear these.

Me: The capes are awesome.

Jon: No capes. They’re not safe. They are a choking hazard.

I acquiesced to this. He had a point. “No capes, dahling.”

And then it was time for school. To learn all the things. But mostly to wreak havoc on the playground while showing off how adorable my favorite superheroes truly are.

Search leaned over to kiss me goodbye. Then he looked up expectantly at me.

“What are you waiting for little man?

He smiled and shrugged his arms. The sparkle in his eyes and the melody of his laugh replied, “I don’t know. Something amazing, I guess.”

Sigh. You are amazing, kid. You are.

Bring it mayhem!

(I do not have any photos. They would not stop moving. So we’ll close with an oldie, but a goodie.)

    Jon is a killjoy. And I’m sure Gramma J will WANT to see the capes too, if it is still raining (surprise – still raining in the Pacific NW – day 1,826,000).

    Rain hasn’t reached us yet…heavy mist at most. Oh SoCal, sigh…. 🙂 I want a raincoat with a cape and I’ll be their sidekick (I’m about their size, right?)!

  3. Such a sweet post! Love the picture of the two of them. Twins! I don’t know how you do it.
