My Son the Super Hero


So remember Monday when I blogged about BOOing?
Well my minion was spotted... and this led to the cutest story EVER.

Attempted head shot. The boy ducked.

N. (age 4) and his dad spotted the BOO minion and the conversation went something like this:

Dad: I think that was Sam.
N.: No, it was Sworder.
Dad: Are you sure? I'm pretty sure it was Sam.
N.: No, Dad. It was Sworder.

A few rounds of this and the dad decided to leave it. Because do you know who Sworder is?

How could you? He's a figment of N.'s imagination... An imaginary best friend who:

Lives in other countries.
Travels around.
Protects people, and
Does good deeds.

And apparently he looks like this:


I love the minds of 4-year-olds. And I love that he now believes he has physically seen this friend of his. Especially a friend who goes around the world doing good things.

I do love this story. Muchly. I knew a kid who's imaginary friend was named Bever. He was realllllly tall and he could eat anything and never got sick. The kid who had this imaginary pal had lots of allergies and physical health problems so it was very good to have Bever around.

NOW I know what I'm going to be for Halloween - Sworder!

Hey, you have one unique, fun, creative kid there. Good going, mama.

I've just now caught up on the last three posts ... too cute! That is an awesome get-up.

Love the "Boo"ing idea; it reminds me of May Day.

Plus, your update was great! I enjoyed reading about your family. (I just tell the clerks that I don't smoke, these are for my husband. Sometimes I buy an extra pack or two and hide them in case of emergency, lol.)

Congrats about all of your new batches of books.

No sense arguing with a 4-year-old. You'll lose every time. hahaha Good for him! :D
