Welcome to What ______ Looks Like! Thank you for coming and I hope you all are enjoying our circle. Please make sure you visit the lovely Wendy VonSosen | San Francisco Bay Area Lifestyle Photographer next to see some serious eyecandy!
I’m sure many of you know the joys of living with little boys! Legos, green army men, cars and blocks are definitely part of our lives around here. By far, the most favorite of Grant’s toys are his Superhero costumes. He absolutely LOVES dressing up and creating little adventures and to be honest, I love it too. I love watching and listening to him when he’s wearing his Thor, Superman and Captain America get-ups. But when he puts on his Batman costume it makes my day. I just swoon over the little six-pack. I find myself giggling at him because it’s too big and when he runs, it’s a slight dilemma because the crotch is down to his knees. LOL!!
Do any of you all have little ones that are dead-set on wearing their costumes out on the town? I have finally broke down and let him because I pick my battles with this strong-willed child of mine. So one day, we were heading to Target to get our weekly grocery shopping done, when he came out sporting Batman. It was so funny and incredibly cute because he was stopped by so many people in the store that played along. One man told him “Thank you for watching over the citizens and putting the bad guys away” in which Grant just turned to him and gave him a thumbs up. The woman in the bakery called him over and gave him a couple cookies and a Batman ring. We got quite a few “Alright Batman” and I can’t even begin to tell you how many smiles and laughs that came our way. I even overheard one girl and her mother in the aisle we were previously in telling her daughter that “no that wasn’t Minnie Mouse, it’s Batman!”
I decided to bring my camera with What _____ Looks Like in mind. I figured I needed to document this special time in his life because I have no doubt he’s going to grow out of this stage. So with that said, I present to you What being a Superhero Looks Like.” We started off the day as Batman (who apparently has wonderful oral hygiene) and ended it as Captain America which is pretty much the norm for my little guy.
