1. Loved this post! I know you probably can’t see it, but from where I sit I see that you are a hero mom raising heroic little men. You take each challenge in stride and teach them by example to do the same. You pay attention to your boys and attention is right behind love, air and food on the list of things kids need most.

  2. My son is fascinated with superheroes as well…especially the hulk! I think it’s the best when we can take what they love and turn it into a love of reading too. We have several superhero books on the shelves that are worn out from reading them so much! Good luck keeping up with all the questions, I know how challenging (and rewarding) that can be! 🙂 Thanks for the great post!

    I can help with the little guy, I was a comic book nerd all through college! Of course, all my info dates to the 80s.

    They can also learn about old cars, hairstyles, clothing, and dial phones from the old comics.

      HI Talli! So nice to see you here – I really like your blog. I love the questions kids come up with too – shows how innocent and intelligent they are!

  5. Very interesting. Aren’t kids wonderful in their own way. My grandson fell in love with the Power Rangers. When I went to take care of him when sister was born, he wanted to watch the movie but not alone. Grandma had to watch along but four times back to back. Sure wish the tape would wear out. When I mentioned that, he told he they had another one that was still in the box.

      HI Janet! Yep, Power Rangers and Transformers are also big here. And I know what you mean – I’ve had a few of those movies I wished would break!!

  6. Jen,
    This is a score again…you are amazing. How awesome your son is… and I think you are a super hero MOM who rocks… as a busy parent it is so easy to put an answer out there and move on.. Two things happen the children really do “hear” your answer… and they believe you! I think your research and smart wit qulaifies you as the coolest super hero out there… and you better believe those boys do to!

  7. Hi Jen! Thanks for reading my blog post and leaving the funny comment! Of course I had to pop over and check out your blog post about superheroes too! He he… I haven’t had to face all of those questions yet… the most I’ve had to deal with so far was when my son asked me to confirm that Spider-Man didn’t shoot any webs at the party because he was indoors and didn’t want to upset the clubhouse owner.

    I said, “That’s right, honey. Spider-Man wasn’t allowed to shoot his webs inside the clubhouse. Otherwise I’m sure he would have been shooting them everywhere and swinging around. It was very nice of Spidey to be so considerate.” LOL!

    My son thought that made perfect sense. Nice post!

    Smiles, Jenn

    Your son will never forget these conversations. When he looks back at his childhood, his friends, his stories and his superheros – he’ll picture you too, because you were right in the mix of things, loving what he loves. I don’t know what other way there is to tell our kids how important they are to us, than by taking an interest in their interests.
