Our new mornings look something like this:
Turbo wakes up. Tank wakes up. Mommy and daddy "lock" them in their rooms until at least 1 cup of coffee has been consumed.
This morning, instead of 2 boys emerging from their room, this is what came out of the black pit of toys:
Tank - dressed as a Fireman-Spiderman
Turbo - Spiderman complete with action hero poses
Oh wait, we aren't done yet: We now have a "Captain Spiderman" in our midst:
Who wouldn't want to start the day with strawberry pancakes? It's the breakfast of superheroes.
Finally, in preparation for Easter, Spiderman showed his softer side and became the "Spider Bunny".
These boys will make my hair gray before my time is due. And although it is now 7:36 in the morning, and we have had multiple costume changes, breakfast made and eaten, dishes cleared, and mom a blog entry posted, I will want to cherish these memories. For I know that in the short time of 10 years, I will be the one putting on a show to just GET these kids out of bed in the mornings.
