It's a bird! It's a plane! ....


... It's Super Jack!!

If you have a 4 year old boy, or ever been around one, you know that they are all about adventure and super heroes! Though my son had never seen an episode of anything with a super hero, he learned it through osmosis. You moms of 2 year old boys that love Elmo and Barney, that are shaking your heads, saying "not my sweet boy"? Yes, it will happen to you too. Those sweet Elmo loving darlings will one day be turning anything stick shaped into a "light saber", and leaping off your couches yelling super hero phrases. I have accepted it, and even think it's really cute now that i've adjusted, so this morning I made Jack a cape. It was incredibly simple... just a rectangle of fabric, and recycled wool (of course!) appliques. The sloppy looking button and loop of elastic is temporary, because I don't have velcro in the house at the moment, but my little super hero doesn't mind :)
