my life with three super heroes.

so i’m not sure if you know this, many people don’t, but i live with three super heroes.

it’s true! they go by disguised names like eleanor, samson and conrad in their day-to-day lives, but they are known around these parts as super E, super S and super C. they do a lot of brave and courageous things each day, like save their stuffed animals from burning towers or even bring the tallest glasses of ice cold water to their mother in her most parched moments of the day. it’s rare to feel scared or nervous around here when these super heroes are often clinging to one of my legs or within arms reach. one of them insists on being held like 10 hours of the day most of the time. they don’t even let me pee with the bathroom door closed! it’s a constant 24/7 job to “super-protect” mama, and they don’t take it lightly.

if you’re curious what it’s like to live with superheroes, i spent yesterday morning shadowing my three favorites below… ;)

1. superheroes are rarely seen in regular clothes.  even on their days off, they are dressed in head to toe super hero apparel. sometimes it’s “invisible,” like when they sleep! but it’s there. it is always there.

2. superheroes are willing to climb anything! even things their “listening ears” tell them they shouldn’t. superheroes can also put on their own bandaids, so they believe it’s okay to climb anything.

3. superheroes make the best silly faces.

4. superheroes often make the biggest messes, too. especially when it comes to food.

5. but superheroes are willing to eat anything off the floor. as shown during this superhero powwow.  it’s not beneath them. superheroes are not wasteful.

6. superheroes are super strong and super brave! around here we talk about how superheroes get scared too, but being brave means they keep going and still save the day even though they’re scared.873642nfbbm4j

7. superheroes are some of the most loving creatures i’ve come across and help take care of each other no matter what.

8. they are also some of the prettiest creatures i’ve seen, too. i can’t help but smother them in a million kisses every day.

9. just today, this particular superhero named super S, saved me from this big red scary dragon! then he tamed the dragon, named him “ha-NUH” (not to be confused with “hannah”) and kept him as a pet. he eats play-doh and is ticklish on his belly, apparently.

0832fjsjg5h life with these three superheroes is a little bit exhausting, but entertaining and hysterical around the clock. they take good care of me and know how to make a mama feel special.

(ps. the superhero get ups were a gift from love lane that was truly the best package to come home to after our trip out west. thank you so much for sending, love lane!)
