Batman Forever

I spend a lot time talking/thinking about my five year old daughter Maxine Jane and how to make her happy and comfortable. I spend a lot of time working with eight year old Olive on her school work and hygiene (oh boy...this is a long story and someday she's going to regret hassling me about it, cause I'm going to tell ALL OF HER FRIENDS about it). I spend a lot of time getting ready for my ten year old daughter Rosey to enter the Pre Teen Hell Zone and washing her soccer clothes.

And although I spend the most time with Elijah you would think I actually give him the most time all in all. But not really.

He's a very happy and self entertaining little boy, he likes to watch batman, play batman games, play with batman toys and play various batman video games. He's my only child that's ever been obsessed with something and also my only child that's ever insisted on dressing in character all day and all night long.

He's certainly handsomer than Kilmer and Keaton's Batmans, way cooler than Clooney's Batman and almost as awesome as Christian Bale's Batman (give me a break people, who's awesomer than Bale?).




I mean seriously! Look at that chin. That Jaw! Le sigh.

When I was a little kid I was obsessed with The Loch Ness Monster, World War 2 and Ernest Hemmingway...so I think that Elijah's Batman obsession seems healthy in comparison.

I was obsessed with barbies and archie comics. Batman is way cooler.

He's adorable.
(for me it was Laura Ingalls and Wonder Woman.)

What an awesome kid! Le sigh indeed. I was obsessed with faeries when I was little, probably had to do with the fact I grew up near the hippie hotspot of the state.

He's a perfect Batman. I love his cute mug.

So cute! My son was a Ninja Turtle and a Ghostbuster...he had the outfits, the toys and I think he really believed it!
