Super Hero Pants...

A recent project for a dear friend and her sweet boys...


These are for the Super Hero obsessed - feeding the addiction or easing the burden of non-stop costume wearing?



These are for her youngest - he's just a few weeks younger than this little lady trying to help with my photos.

 




My kids have always been my little helpers. It's wonderful but I've found that it takes at least twice as long to get just myself ready when they are "helping" their mama out. Even these photos took about 15 minutes - yes, four photos taking 15 minutes.

Seriously, though, I love it. Especially now - they still think I'm so cool and I get the best greetings when I walk into a room. So as far as I'm concerned, they can help as much as they like. I just need to be more disciplined about starting the "get ready" cycle much, much earlier.


Do you have little helpers in your life and how do you manage with their helping efforts?

We love superheroes at our house! To cute!

I definitely have little helpers and it does take much longer to get things done! But if they want to help I am all for it :)

First of all - How cute is that ponytail on your little girl????!!!!! LOVE IT!

And I also love and yearn to have your abilities. Those pants are perfect and so so fun.

I totally hear you on the helper front. I get a lot of help - just this morning I was helped during vacuuming and I have to say, I love it too and am trying to soak it all in!

I'm pretty sure I know who these are for and I think they'll be a big hit!!! (OF course, it leaves the East Coast with one less caped crusader.)

And I've found that you really have to SLOW DOWN, take a deep breath and allow kids to help even though it can make you crazy; they appreciate so much and learn so much. Whenever I do it, I'm glad I did.

THANK YOU so much for these! They are just fantastic! He loves them so much- I haven't been able to get them off him! The past two days were batman and today is spiderman! He told me "If I wear these special 'TREX MOM' pants with a super hero shirt, it is kind of like a costume that I can wear to the store!"
Excellent!

And I would like to think of it as breaking up the costume wearing- not feeding the addiction! ;) Well okay maybe a little...
Thanks again!

we are big superman fans! :) I LOVE those little car pants! And Bebe Sister's pony tail on top of her head - Soooo cute - makes me want a girl.
A. is getting to the point where he is "helping" by taking all my folded laundry OUT of the basket and flinging it around the room! LOL - I am learning patience! :)

Very cute! My little helpers are not as many any more, but Jillian loves to run the show sometimes when I have a project!
