Owen as a superhero. (Yet another great use for play silk!)
Mom: What are your superhero powers?
Owen: To save the day!!
Mom: Who do you save?
Owen: People who fall down.
Mom: Here, take some pain medicine (hands Super Hero a play plastic salt shaker).
Owen: (pretends to take “medicine”)
Mom: Let’s put an ice pack on your arm (super goop I made last week).
Mom: How did you break your bones Super Hero?
Owen: The kids came to my house and broke my bones.
Obviously a lousy superhero, Owen decides to get a new day job. He puts on a tie, picked up a brief case (backgammon game), ends our nice picnic at the table in his room by setting down his sandwich and informing me, “Sorry mom. Can’t eat lunch. Have to go to work.”
Owen my dearest, you crack me up.
Note to self: Make Owen a super hero mask so I don’t have to scrub face paint off his face next time. (He had to go to the park like this).
