The Supers

The Incredibles are already taken...another one of Derek's favorite movies. In fact, Derek used to look exactly like Jack Jack when he was a baby. But this morning at Breakfast, Derek had an announcement for us. Jeff is usually home on Wednesdays, because it is my big day to get school stuff done. We were all sitting at the counter when Derek said, "Dad, you are 'Paintball Man'. And you have paintballs that come out of your arms...like this" (kind of a Spiderman thing fist with his arm curled upwards instead of out). We all laughed because that came out of no where! So Jeff asked him what his special power was:

Derek: I am really fast, and I can jump really far
Jeff: Like Dash

Derek: Yeah, like Dash

Jeff: So, are we like The Incredibles?

Derek: No, we aren't The Incredibles

Jeff: The Supers?

Derek: Yes, The Supers!

Jeff: What is Mom's special power?

Derek: Kisses

Jeff: Kisses?

Derek: She has magic kisses. They make everything feel better.

(I am not kidding!!!! He really said that and came up with it all by himself!)

Jeff: What is Clint's Power?
Derek: He doesn't have any special powers...

Jeff: He can build things with Legos

Derek: Yes, he is a good builder. He can build things....

(It's a good thing Clint had to leave right before that comment...)
So we are The Supers...I think I'll have to get some T-shirts made up! And I need to post one of Derek's Jack Jack look alike pictures from when he was a baby...and I probably need to commission Chelsea to draw our pictures as Superheros...I would pay just about anything for that!

If I wasn't there I wouldn't have believed it! Derek is getting too big (tear forming....)!

Oh my heavens, he does look just like Jack Jack!

Chelsea Stebar said...

Hey man, I'd be more than happy to draw y'all. I'm just sitting around, waiting for jobs these days. And y'all can definitely have a discount, since you're family. :D

That is so cute. I love the picture of Derek. He looks just like that baby. And it's amazing what little kids can come up with on their own. I'm sure your kisses really do make everything all better.

That is so precious, and good thing you have it documented in your blog, cause 10 years from now you may not remember those precious words. I hope Chelsea does draw you all, that would be very cool, and then frame and display them in your house :)
