Flying High

Josiah (almost 3) thinks he is Spiderman.  Like, seriously.  What's funny about this is that he has never seen the Spiderman movies (what kind of a parent do you think I am??), so this obsession started only by seeing pictures of him.  Even in Tanzania, Spiderman is present on backpacks, shirts, and even sold in inflatable form on the side of the road.  So somehow, just by seeing him, with that superhero gene that is present in little boys, Josiah figured out that this is a guy he wanted to be like.  Last week Daddy finally let him see some flying scenes from the actual movie (I guess we are those kind of parents), and now the obsession is in full force. 

Spiderman even helped Josiah to overcome his fear of jumping in the water.  As you can see, when he is Spiderman, he is unstoppable. 

The sad part is, that according to Josiah, Spiderman does not kiss his mommy.  Actually, he says, Spiderman does not have a mommy.   However, also according to Josiah, he does go pee in the toilet.  That is very good news. 

(and he does still kiss me anyway)
