Superhero

Lately getting Kaiden dressed has been darn near impossible. Getting out the door without a meltdown was nearly never happening all because his Mee-ma and P-pa bought him a Superman shirt for Christmas. All of a sudden that is ALL he wants to wear every morning when getting dressed.

In an effort to prevent the meltdowns I would prep him each day by telling him, "your Spiderman shirt is dirty right now, so we need to pick a different shirt to wear today." Most of the time he was in agreement and seemed like we would be successful in picking a different shirt. But, when it came down to actually dressing him...all. out. war.

So, my mom was in town last week visiting for a few days. Since she is the one that put us in this predicament in the first place :), she volunteered to help out our cause a bit by purchasing a week's worth of superhero t-shirts. We headed to Target to see what we could find. Two Targets and a Walmart later we had our stash in place.
So far it seems to be working. He wears one of these every. single. day. Except this past Saturday when I actually got him to wear a plain white long sleeve shirt for his T-ball game. Don't ask. I have no clue how I pulled that off.

He is still a little unsure of the red Spiderman shirt and Batman T. So while it took a little convincing for him to wear the red Spider man t-shirt over the blue one (that was in the wash) he did cooperate and got through the day without mishaps. He has yet to wear the Batman t-shirt.

But the Superman t-shirt is, by far, his fav....good thing we bought two.
Hopefully this will end the dressing war!

Such pressure to come up with a solution...sooo, it's good to know my little super-hero is keeping his end of the bargain (almost)! Good thing we bought Large, cause it might take several months to convince K-rez that Batman is every bit as amazing as Superman & Spidey!!!!
