I spent much of this past weekend making Ben's Halloween costume. But that's not what this blog post is about. (Once I manage to get Ben to wear the darn thing, I'll post a pic.) There was quite a lot of felt left over. So Ben was urging Neil to use this to make his own costume. Neil said that he could put a giant felt "N" on his shirt and go as Super Neil. Ben liked this idea, but suggested that instead he go as Robert. Robert? Yes, Robert. Another superhero, named Robert. Y'know -- he doesn't fly, like Superman, but he's a superhero. Named Robert.
Aaaaaaahhh -- Robin!!!
For whatever reason, Ben doesn't get much superhero exposure at home, but I'm sure he overhead talk of Batman and Robin at school. Or slightly misheard, as the case may be.
There should be a superhero named Robert. I wonder what his special power would be.
