I had no idea that my son was a Superhero.

I knew that Tyler was super cool, I mean he is my son after all, a chip off the old block. But a Superhero?

Tuesday nights are swim class nights for us. We don't live in a warmer climate where it is easy to access a pool year round, so we head to the local YMCA once a week.  I feel that swim classes are most important in the winter months when kids aren't swimming everyday.  I would hate to get to summer time and have them just sink to the bottom of the pool because they hadn't worked on their skills for over six months.  The boys seem to really enjoy it, which is the most important thing.

So swim classes are important, but that is not what this post is about.  It's about something that happens AFTER swim class, something in the locker room.  It's where a transformation takes place turning Tyler from a mere mortal child into that of a SUPER child:

Why Tyler decides to do this every time we go is beyond me.  But why do kids do half the stuff they do, because they can.  At least he is getting himself dressed right?  Just getting your clothes on would be quite boring.

If you noticed at the end of that video my other son Carter walked into the locker; he always has to copy his older brother. The only difference though is that two minutes after he walked, in he came out with NO clothes on.  It leads me to the question, is Carter a superhero all of the time, or is his super suit his birthday suit?

  1. Hell yeah. Able to leap tall building next?

  2. My 2nd does everything his big brother does too.  If biggest falls down the steps, middle-man throws himself down too.  the whole jumping off the bridge thing scares the snockers out of me.

  3. I love how he looks at you as he gets in the closet LOL

  4. Wow, impressive kid John...Love the fast-change! Next time...when you edit, have it be instant so we don't see the transition!!!! That's my showbiz background showing up! lol...
