he's 'lyin' like a ehpane.

The other night, Jonyn had a superman cape on that we've had forever and was wearing with just his diaper (it was after bath, and just before bed, and I'm too cheap to buy pullups for overnight). He kept climbing on the coffee table trunk and asking to "'ly like a ehpane peas." He wouldn't jump off until gave him permission, or at least acknowledged that we heard him asking to jump. So we did, over and over again.
Then he wanted me to count it out for him. "1, 2, 3, JUMP!" So we did that for awhile. After many jumps, Brennen joined in. Only, he would climb up, sit down, and basically slide off the trunk. Super cute.
At this point in the story I'd like to make mention that Jonyn has never seen a Superman movie or show. He has no idea who Clark Kent is. He probably doesn't even really know who Superman is, but because we've told him the name of the hero's cape he wears, he knows it's a Superman Cape.
That being said, suddenly, when we'd say his name, he'd say, "No, I Soopamen." Okay, fine, then we'd call him Superman.
Then he suddenly whipped the cape off over his head and said, "No, I Jonyn!"

This went on for several more minutes.

No kidding. He apparently has two identities like the real Superman. Who knew?


  1. I think I've said this before, but every time I see him I think of my middle child. They seem so much alike. So crazy and fun. :)


I am so happy you are here. Your words make my heart so happy.
