As the grown-ups were winding down I suggested, "Mason maybe we could draw or do something else." I had just about hit my limit of playing "Baby".
From this little suggestion Mason lit up, "Yeah, let's play superheroes. First we have to draw our designs for our superheroes and then we can play."
Ellie and I joined him on drawing and he created 3 to our 1 picture each. The following characters were born.
|Super Stretch By Mason|
|Super Good Hero By Mommy, Face and Name By Mason|
|Ellie Superhero By Ellie|
|Weather Man By Mason|
|Force Field Guy By Mason|
|Hammer Hand By Uncle Chris|
Thankfully the boy is a speedy artist and had extra heroes ready for play.
Daddy as Super Stretch,
Grandma as Weather Man,
Mason as Force Field Guy,
Mommy as Super Good Hero,
Ellie as Ellie SuperHero, and
Uncle Chris as Hammer Hand.
The wild adventure that followed will play out in your imagination. Enjoy.
After a late afternoon nap, Ellie was not quite ready to sleep so she got back up with me a bit and decided after drawing she wanted to cut something. She got her drawings and began. I asked her what she was making. "Nothing, I am just cutting."
Here is her masterpiece. I think I will clean it up tomorrow.
