Underpants = Superman

Dalin is in the very early stages of potty training (meaning he likes to wear underpants, but he doesn't really make an effort to make it to the toilet). We've told him that big boys wear underpants and in his mind that means he's faster, stronger and taller every time he wears them. We were at the park today and he wanted to climb on top of the tube slide and I told him I didn't think that was such a good idea. He told me, "I wearing underpants, I stronger!" When Jayden comes over it's almost like he's embarrassed to be wearing a diaper, so he will hurry and change into underwear. He actually does really well for the first half of the day, then I think he feels to much responsibility and he opts for a diaper. I am in no hurry to enter this stage of toddler-hood, so I'm letting him go at his own pace, but I am getting a good laugh this time around.

One more quote from Dalin. As I was taking down the Christmas decorations, he asked me why I was taking them down. I told him Christmas is over. He seemed a little depressed and with every ornament he took off the tree he would say, "Christmas over."

I feel the same way Dalin does about Christmas being over. In fact I cry the day that I take the tree down... doesn't that seem like a good song title?

Luke has the same idea about underwear, kind of. When Superman comes on TV, Luke's clothes come off, because obviously Superman wears his underwear on the outside.
