Lightning Boy & Star Girl

With Taipan and Taisim being so enthusiastic about putting on costumes and wearing towels, Karen had the briliiant idea of looking for capes for them to wear! She found this great little shop called Superfly Kidz that specializes in such apparel, so we ordered 2 for our kids. They arrived on Wednesday, and we've been having a blast with them ever since!

I was deemed worthy of a cape (I used my Starbucks apron), and we all had to have superhero names. Thus, Lightning Boy, Star Girl, and Starbucks Guy were born. I told them that superheroes usually have superhero teams or supergroups (not like Cream or Led Zeppelin, but X-Men or The Avengers), so I asked Taipan what our team should be called. Being as into High School Musical as he is, is it any wonder that he chose Wildcats? So our routine is we all stand on the couch (hands on hips in true superhero fashion), and we yell back and forth...

"What team?"
"WILDCATS!"

"What team?"
"WILDCATS!"

"What team?"
"WILDCATS!"

"WILDCATS!"
"Get 'cha head in the game!"

Then we all jump off of the couch and fly around the house... lather, rinse, repeat... and let me tell you, flying around the house can be a bit TIRING... Starbucks Guy is getting too old for this :)
Where are Taipan & Taisim?Ready for action!
Action shot!Ready to climb over the couch.
Star Girl jumps over the couch...Lightning Boy does the same, gracefully.
Lightning Boy IS fast!Up and away!


Another day of foiling evil done.

I never could put my finger on it but I knew the kids were extra special - it all makes sense now that they're revealed as superheroes ...
