"Can you please make...?" or
"Do you think maybe you could...?"
While his horrified mother reprimanded him, I giggled because, when it's not your kid, it's funny. Besides, who could keep a straight face looking at his ensemble for that day. Yes, he's wearing his underwear OVER his pj's and did you see the belt and sunglasses? The boy loves to accessorize. I made that cape he's wearing months ago and he wears it everywhere. He recently wore it on a flight to Seattle and the pilots were so amused by him, they let him peek into the cockpit. You know, it's not everyday a superhero is on your flight.
Well the little booger is moving to Seattle and I had to make sure he didn't leave without a new cape. I brought it over to him last night and the look on his face when he saw it was pure awesomeness! It took me less than two hours to make this cape. I have given quilts that have taken me weeks to make and while the recipients are always happy to receive my gift, they don't have the look this kid had. His face radiated pure joy! He looked at me like I had just hung the moon and who doesn't love that kind of adoration? Let's just say we were both on Cloud 9.
Here's a picture of him pointing at the S. He told me he needed a red cape with a red S on an upside down yellow triangle. I aim to please.
Here he is modeling his cape.
I made it reversible in case he felt like being his alter ego Batman. Do you want to know what he said? Can you make me a BLUE Batman cape? Little booger!
