"Superhero"

Wow, I haven't posted all week! I promise everything's OK ~ I've just had a lot going on & haven't had much time! So I decided to [hopefully] humor you with a little


I don't know if I've ever told you how absolutely hilarious my sweet boy was a pre-schooler, but we quote four-year-old Cody on a regular basis. For example, one time he proclaimed, "I am a genius!" He proceeded to point at each person in the room, saying, "I farter than you. I farter than you. I farter than you." Then pointing at himself, he said, "I fart!"

In case you didn't figure it out, he was saying smart! He had a bit of trouble with some phonemes, and several words ended up sounding more like "bathroom humor" than he really intended. A famous mispronunciation that we still use today is the word  fartfellows (instead of marshmallows). It may sound as if I'm making fun of his little speech impediment. In all honesty, I am just a little bit. But it was so adorable! And no offense has been taken (up to this point, at least). He even quotes his four-year-old self as a joke, so I think it's OK.

But mostly, he was simply hilarious ~ speech impediment or not. I would love to post everything that we regularly quote, but it wouldn't be as cute without actually hearing it. And I'd have a hard time typing things phonetically.

The following story is just a small example of the things that went through Cody's four-year-old mind...

My sweet boy had big plans for the future. He was quite set on being a "soup hewo" [superhero] when he grew up & was constantly "training" for this future job. I took these pictures at my dad's house when Cody was training with my baby brother's hand weights...


:)

& Aunt Sheryl made him this mask & cape for Christmas:


One day he told me quite matter-of-factly that (in his role as a superhero) he would "catch the bad people and tell them about God so they can be good." As a woman who loves Jesus, this mama was so proud of her little evangelist!


Then he added, "And if they don't believe or don't want to understand, I will shoot them."

:D

Awwww! Those stories are so precious, just look at how adorable he is. Hannah and I were just mentioning the other day about the 3 of us relating do to speech therapy, although I'm sure Cody would have still had tons of cute things to say either way.
