I Can Be Your Hero, Baby – Perfect Moment Monday

When I first started this blog in January 2008, the twins were in 1st grade, Jordan was in Pre-K, and Kaelyn was a 2-year-old who looked like this:

“GOOOOOD MORNIIIIIIIIIING!” is what she said, just before she smothered me in a syrupy kiss and hugged me with sticky hands.

Now, I have two 6th graders, a 4th grader, and a once-Spiderman-superhero who wrote this in her second week of 1st grade:

I only cried a little bit.

And yes, she did say that her favorite food is corn dogs. We’re classy like that.

  1. So sweet! It is good to be the hero and as a Mom, I’m sure it should say SuperHero. Preserve that forever, it will keep you going in about 10 years:) Oh yeah, Corn Dogs Rock!

    1. I have a folder marked “PUBERTY.” In it, I’m placing all of the things to remind me of when she was cute so that I won’t be tempted to strangle her when she whips out a teenage attitude on me.

      1. HILARIOUS!! You will need it, trust me! I was feeling all mushy about my 13 year old. He then came to ask exactly why he can’t play video games before school. I better go search for some early “I love Mommy” pictures.

  2. Awww! So sweet! (Corn dogs are my girl’s favorite food too. Well, Corn anything, I think. Last week, she got mad at me over cornbread. I was making dinner, and she asked me to make cornbread, but I told her it was too hot to put the oven on.)

        1. Frank uses Jiffy mix! He just smears a cast iron skillet with a half-a-cow’s worth of butter, dumps about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of sugar and about 1 tps of vanilla extract into the batter, then bakes it in the oven at 400 degrees until it’s finished. I’ve never made cornbread a day in my life. I totally just had to ask him for that information.

  3. Wow! Time sure does fly… So bittersweet. Thank you for sharing that adorable picture and the latest addition to your “Puberty file.” I love corn dogs and corn bread and am craving both now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. That is the best title EVER. ๐Ÿ™‚ And definitely … something to treasure.

    BTW … I had my first corn dog two weeks ago. And it was … surprisingly GOOD. (Me and my bad CSA-snob self are making a serious confession here, you understand. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Geesh! forget the superhero mom thing! She’s my superhero for spelling rollerskate correctly!!!! (that stuff impresses me, lol)
