A week ago was your actual 4th birthday, though your birthday party with your friends was the day before on Saturday.
That meant you had already opened your presents from your friends by the time Mommy and I let you open your gifts from us the next morning at our house.
Sort of half-jokingly, I suggested that before you got started opening our gifts to you, that you should dress up in the super hero costume that your friend Madison had given you. (We actually let you open your gifts in front of your friends at your party; even though that’s nearly considered weird these days!)
You didn’t hesitate.
To make things even better, you happened to already be wearing your Batman pajamas, which had served as your Halloween costume just a few weeks ago.
So by the time you put on your costume, it apparently made you Super Captain Batman Jack!
It’s like you honestly believed that the red cape made you fun faster, because you were trying it out right, getting into super hero character before you sat down to open your presents.
I want to be clear, you did not remove one item of the costume the entire time, including the mask.
Even if you never wear the costume again, which after seeing this, I’m pretty sure you will, it was worth Madison picking out this outfit for you just for this event alone.
It was a relevant gift for more than one reason. Turns out, one of the gifts Mommy and I got for you was a Spiderman sleeping bag.
Not only have you been using it to sleep on this week, given that everything is moved out of our house now since we’re moving out to live with some friends as our new house is being built, but I also envision your new Spiderman sleeping bag to be what you sleep on when we “go camping” in our backyard of our new house next summer.
And fortunately, your mechanically-minded Uncle Andew was there to help put together a Techno Gears Marble Mania Quest maze; it took him only 2 hours, whereas the box warned it would take 3 to 4!
You provided great entertainment for our family as you opened your “Mommy and Daddy” presents. You really did make the best Super Captain Batman Jack that I have ever seen!
