Call Him Spiderman

A couple weeks ago, Ethan informed me he wanted to be Superman when he grows up. He's been a fan of Spiderman, so when I asked him if he was sure he wanted to be Superman and not Spiderman, Ethan carefully explained to me that Superman can fly!

Friday I couldn't get Ethan to take a bath. So I asked him if he still wanted to be Superman. "Yes" he says. "Well, Superman always listens to his mommy." I tell Ethan. Not sure if I'm telling the truth, he checks with Scott. And of course, Scott backs me up. So Ethan agrees to take his bath.

Now I think I've got a sure fire way to get him to do what I want. So Saturday comes around, and I try it again. This time Ethan calmly tells me that he's changed his mind. He doesn't want to be Superman, he wants to be Spiderman. (I guess Spidey doesn't have to listen to his mommy)

Then his best friend returned from SA and brought him a Spiderman T-shirt. So today Ethan insisted on wearing it (it has long sleeves and it is beyond hot here). He's walking around informing everyone that he's not just wearing a Spiderman T-shirt, but he is Spiderman!

Spider-Man rocks, Ethan!

When u get a little older, I'll take you for your first Spider-Man tattoo. And then I'll spend the rest of my life running from your parents....
