Even Super Heroes Need A Place To Call Home


This is a story about my super heroes going from being homeless and living under a street light (..lamp) to living in a mansion.

BUT….That situation was much better than this option.

My action figures weren’t about to move into this. Well….Maybe if they get married and their wife makes them (Sorry Wonder Woman!). For now, they are single and allowed to make their own decisions. They needed a cool lair to call their own.

So…with some old Ikea storage units, wood, dad’s handyman skills and lots of mommy magic…….THIS WAS BORN!!!!!!!

House Start to Finish

It was a process. (…I supervised while playing video games.)

Let’s take a look at all the cool spaces.

Inside My Lair

My action figures told me that if they ever get married, they’re keeping this place as a secret. Hey! Secrets and Super Heroes go hand in hand. Don’t judge them!!!!

Anyway…Here’s one last look at my secret lair, in it’s secret location in my room I mean…it’s secret location in the world.

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch!


Okay Chicken….I’m no egg expert, but I’m pretty sure this is crazy big. Are you doing steroids? What are you hiding? What’s happening in that barn? And don’t even think of playing games with me!

Hey mommy. No. Everything’s fine here. The train? Don’t worry about that. The chicken and me are gonna play a little game on the tracks.

Don’t even think of clucking at my mommy when she walks away. We can always have chicken soup tonight. Have I made myself clear?

Today was not my day. (Day: 37)


I went to school today, but that was the easy part. I mean how bad is a muffin in the morning and a turkey cheese sandwich for lunch. Not too bad. I worked on a turkey feather collage and played with cars and scooters at gym time. BUT….The time after school was the rough stuff.

First of all…..my wife came home with me. Enough said on that.

My artistic vision was lost today. I couldn’t figure out what to doodle on my doodle pad. It was sad and made me feel poopy. Oh where, oh where did my muse go?

Today1

Then I couldn’t decide what to wear, so I went to my mommy’s closet. What was I even thinking? Her clothes don’t fit me. Plus….I have better taste.

Today2

I did find this questionable high heel shoe in her closet. It looked like Minnie Mouse’s shoe on steroids. On the upside, I found something to use as a hammer.

Today3

And finally…..I was clueless about putting my pajamas on. It’s not like riding a bike. It’s not. Okay….Maybe it is. I don’t know how to do that either. Not yet.

Today5

I just want to go to bed.

Are you in the right circles? (Days: 33 & 34)


DAY 33: Here I am working on my circle skills. This is not trickery courtesy of my mommy. That is my handiwork people.

No school on Tuesday cause the grownups around here had to use the schools to do something called voting. They had to go fill in someone else’s circles. Mommy and Daddy must have been embarrassed because they had to hid behind a curtain to do it. Then someone gave them a sticker when they were done. Sounds crazy to me.

I hide and do things. I don’t get stickers.

DAY 34: This was Wednesday. Today was picture day at my school. I don’t need to worry about my looks, so I decided to keep working on my circle skills.

Time for school.

Bringing my pad with me.

Oh shitake mushroom!

Who put that drop there?

Happy Gilmore and Picture Day 055

It’s good.

I’m up.

I got this.

Happy Gilmore and Picture Day 056

Okay. Can you put the camera down and help me down these steps?  You know I can only keep my eyebrows up like this for so long.

This is not a drug PSA! It’s a mom PSA.


I  posted this picture about a week ago.

This is what my daddy can accomplish drug-free. Pretty impressive effort on his part.

This is what my mommy can accomplish on drugs.

(legally prescribed ones – in her name)

What a showoff!

This is one of the reasons that daddy married mommy. He won’t tell me the other reasons.

I’m glad mommy is getting better from her surgery, because I missed her.

I really missed the stuff that mommy does for me.

Oh darn! Does this mean I can’t stay up late anymore daddy?

I’m self-sufficient. (PreK: Day 15)


Mommy took this picture of me after I got home from school today. It was a half day, which for me meant only two hours. That was a good thing since I had to talk to my associate.

“Mom. I told you not to eavesdrop on my meetings with my consigliere.

There are some things…..you can’t unhear.”

Day 15

BE AWARE:

I can get what I need.

See me at the big black thingie?

Self-Sufficient

Look at how effortlessly I opened it with my tiny little fingers.

See how focused I am? I’m bending down and reaching for what I want.

Tortilla chips. My favorite.

Now you know how I get to this happy place.

I know where the snacks are kept.

I won’t starve.
