No offense to Christopher Reeve or Brandon Routh*

For his birthday, AB got a sweet set of Superman PJs from his grandparents. It's got a detachable velcro cape and everything. He put on the PJ top after dinner with the grandparents and kept it on all evening, occasionally running around with one fist straight out ahead of him, just like in all the posters.

He asked that we call him "Superman" for the rest of the night. We did as requested. At bedtime, NSAH said, "Time to go to the potty, Superman."

AB replied: "Superman can't go potty."

NSAH: "Why not?"

AB: "Superman doesn't have a penis."

Someone page Lois Lane...

* Or George Reeves or Dean Cain or Tom Welling.

You'd think with the spandex outfit we'd have noticed that by now.

Oh, and Happy Birthday, Superman!

Clearly, he's never read "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex."

Dang, Genevieve stole my comment!!

(Both boys have those jammies, and they are by far the faves... but if anything, we have an excess of penises at our place!)

Yeah, that is a rather smooth area of spandex, isn't it?

Ahem. Maybe Lois wasn't all that interested in penises anyway.
