Heroes and Rounds

Today Charlie had me draw a button on his tummy with the letters "SC" underneath. He presses it to turn into Supercharlie. He has cool sound effects for the transformation, too.

He sings a lot these days. And composes. After a few rounds of "Rain, rain, go away" he made up the following song:

Rain, it's okay
You can stay
Because I love you

Gnome Stories

One day, the three gnomes that live in the back of the Jeep were hungry. They snuck out of the Jeep and went to the back of King Charlie's house. There was a cake on the porch! King Charlie had made a cake for the gnomes to eat! And they ate it and then they were full. And they went back to the jeep and took a nap. And they were happy. The End.

--as told by Charlie,
late at night
in the dark.

Charlie wrapped a ribbon around his wrist and said, "Oh, no! Supercharlie is tangled up again."

This is the first we've heard of Supercharlie. I figured I'd better document it in case it became a thing.

Charlie is into machines. Specifically, inventing them. Tonight we taped together various things from the kitchen--a pen, a rubber band, a yogurt container lid, a nozzle for piping icing. It featured both a button and a thing that went round and round, the two main elements of a successful machine. Charlie wrote a "boopint" on a post-it note...

Why do so many of our great moments feature post-it notes?

...and then we showed the whole contraption to Daddy before Charlie went up to drift off, snuggled up under our wedding ring quilt on a drizzly, foggy, Maritime evening.
