Pretty Incredible

At 4 years old, Sam is at the height of imaginative play. He loves to pretend all of the time - playing with his action figures, his "little people" barn, with his stuffed animals, and he also loves to pretend he is a superhero. A good friend often shares the clothes that her sons have outgrown with us for Sam. In the last "batch" of clothes, Sam found these "Incredibles" pajamas. For the longest time, he simply slept in them. Now, they have become an obsession! He wears them at least 2 or 3 days a week, taking them off only to be washed sometimes. His "costume" also has accesories - gloves & boots (aka socks) and a "mask" (brad's freaky looking fishing glasses with the lenses out). Recently, I was standing at the sink washing dishes when he asked, "Mom, have you seen any crimes? I am a crimefighter and I need to find a crime." :) You can imagine the joy when I found some pj's in Luke's size! Sam nearly had a - and instantly began to plan a way for our entire family to have some. He was sure to include that i needed to have another baby so there could be a girl to be the "sister." I chuckled and suggested we'd have to remain an all boy crime fighting team - with a mom. You never know what the day will bring...these boys of mine are pretty incredible.
