A conversation between Sean and I en route to preschool...
"Mom there's a doll house in my classroom at school."
"That's nice. Is there a family and furniture in it?"
"Do you play with it?"
(said through gritted teeth) "Yes."
"Well that's nice."
"I hate doll stuff being in there!"
"Why? That's a good way to learn to be a Mommy and Daddy when you're older."
"I don't want to be that when I'm older!"
"You don't want to be a Daddy?"
"Ok, well what do you want to be then?"
Later in the day I tell my husband about this conversation. Naturally, he does the only thing he deems appropriate... he whispers to Sean that he (my husband) is in fact Iron man and explains that Sean MUST keep it a secret. Sean was skeptical but Corey was very convincing about his superhero crime-fighting abilities. Sean was told that Dad was trusting this secret with him and that he couldn't even tell Nate. Dad and Sean (who you could just tell thought we were both totally nuts)then went off for haircuts and a manly trip to Home Depot. Upon returning Sean took one look at Nate who had just come home from school, looked over to Corey, and whispered "I won't tell your superhero secret Dad."
