We were getting ready for a funeral and I knew Joe was going to need a warning that he wasn't going to be able to wear a costume...
Me: Joe, you aren't going to be able to wear a costume to this.
Joe: Why?
Me: Because you have to wear fancy clothes to things like this.
Joe: But I DO look fancy.

And it was true, he did look very fancy in his leggings with underpants over and a cape safety-pinned on, just not the kind of fancy we were going for.

Joe (from the bathroom): Mom, what does S-E-N-A-H spell?
Me: That doesn't spell anything.
Joe: Well, it's written on my underwear.

We have 10 minutes to leave the house and be on time to work/daycare... and all Joe's "superheroish clothes" are dirty...
Mom: Joe, can you just wear regular clothes today?
Joe (eyes welling up with tears): Mom, it's really important to me that when I go to Chrissie's I AM a superhero.

Conversation with Chrissie

Chrissie sometimes takes the kids to a food shelf at a local church and last time they peeked their heads in and looked around at the pews etc...

Joe: I've never been in a church before except one time when I went to a funeral. I was really quiet at the funeral and so I got an airplane as a prize.
Chrissie: Wow!
Joe: Well, it was just a toy airplane.
