Batman and Sparkly Robin

Greyson and I spent the morning playing in the Bat Cave (one of his Imaginext toys) and waiting for the GE repairman. I thought we were having lots of fun until Greyson told me I was not playing right and then he took his toys and went home. Well, into another room anyway. At first, I got to be Batman to his Joker. But they were both on the same "team" according to Grey.
This is when we were making a getaway after a highly profitable bank robbery of money and suckers. We then went back to our secret lair, aka the Bat Cave, located behind Chuck E Cheese. Greyson loves to talk about Chuck E Cheese, even though he has never been there and as long as I am living, he will never go there.

"I'm King of the World" or at least the Bat Cave.

Alas, Greyson thought I was having too much fun with Batman, so he took him from me and gave me Robin, but he still let me be on his "team". Only he could not find Robin, so he gave me this dude with the shaved head and goatee. You cant tell from this picture, but "Robin's" suit is a very sparkly bluish silver. I don't know for sure, but I think "Robin" here may be playing on a different team entirely.
The reason I spent over an hour playing Batman and Sparkly Robin.

Couldn't you just eat him up?

Only for my precious Greyson would I sit in the floor for hours on end and let both Batman and the Joker kick the sh*t out of my Sparkly non Robin dude.

Exciting Day

Sorry for the lack of updates, but we have been busy lately. Nicholas has had a loose tooth, his first, since November. Finally, over the past week, it has been loose enough to come out. Actually, he has been nagging his Daddy to pull it for over 2 weeks, but today Bryant decided it was loose enough to pull without causing any drama. For those of you familiar with Nicholas, you know that this is no small chore. We deal with major hysteria over a small splinter. I was having a hard time believing that he would actually allow his Daddy to pull a tooth. I figured it would go something like this "Daddy, I want this tooth to come out, but I don't want you to touch it or me or get within 3 feet of it or even look at it or I will totally freak and run around the house screaming that you are going to kill me and that I will never forgive you for this". But that is not how it went at all. We were at the restaurant after closing and Nicholas was once again nagging for him to pull it, so he sat down with him, worked on it for about 3 minutes and out it came. No drama, no tears, not even an "I am mad at the both of you" like we got the last time he had a splinter and we tried to get it out. Just a tiny bit of blood and it didn't phase him. Again, unusual because the last time he had a nose bleed, he screamed bloody (no pun intended) murder for a full 10 minutes after it stopped.

So my big boy is getting bigger and while I will miss those perfect little baby teeth, I couldn't be happier for him. Congrats sweet Nicholas, Mommy and Daddy are as proud as you are. Love you to the moon and back and back again.
