Make Believe

When we came home from our "mini-break" to Hot Springs last week, Finn surprised us by suddenly sprouting an imagination! He has always been adamantly against playing pretend, or any sort of game that insinuates that he is any other person than himself, so I was a little taken aback when he declared himself as Batman as we stepped in the door. And it didn't stop there. He went on to be Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Firefly, and Man-Bat (notice a theme?). He EVEN consented to wearing a costume (made of the finest construction paper and tape).
Here he is in action as Firefly: And Man-Bat:

McKinley gets to take part as well, but doesn't really get in on the action (although, now that she has seen her brother jump of every piece of furniture we own, she has attempted to follow). Yes, she sat still for a few days after her cast was put on, but then she started an army crawl and now she is full-on RUNNING in her cast. More than that, she is actually climbing onto my bed and throwing herself onto the mattress with gusto. Talk about thrill-seeking.

Some very sweet friends of mine put together a Get Well basket for her, full of toys to keep her busy as she recuperates. I am doubly thankful for it just because we are all stuck in the house with colds as well.

Here's some more footage of Man-Bat in action:


  1. So cute! I love the homemade costumes, you guys rock! Sorry that you guys are sick!! I hope you get better soon!
