Super heros and read throughs

Little Elvis had his first play practice last night. He wanted to take his talking Captain America. I said he could, but Captain America couldn't talk during the parent meeting which was held before the read through.

It was a busy evening. I had another meeting I was going to try to attend after the parent meeting. The parent meeting ran long (thanks to parents asking stupid questions) and I missed my other meeting. Yay.

When I got back, all of the kids were seated on the front two rows to read their lines. I couldn't sit by (re: control) my child.

The read through began, and I heard, "I am Captain America!!" Little Elvis little head jerked up, and I made my way over as quickly as I could to get that doll. He said that another boy pushed the button. Since I didn't specifically say that Captain America couldn't talk during the read through, he got the doll back when we got home. We have to be super-specific with Little Elvis.

I also thought it was kind of funny. But I'm getting good at not laughing at some of these things.

One more thing about my Little Elvis. He told me last week that my tummy looked mushy, so I must be pregnant. He tried to talk to the baby in my tummy. Um, I'm almost back to my pre-Little Elvis pregnancy weight. My pants that day were too big for me. I was all proud of myself, until I heard about my mushy tummy. I guess I need to actually start doing situps.

It sounds like Little Elvis had a sense that Captain America shouldn't be talking - which is great in and of itself. I'd be smiling (internally!) too!
