The World's First Naked Superhero: Answers to the Questions on YOUR Minds


This is Ninja Demon Baby. Allow me to explain what is going on in this photo for those who are not familiar with him.
1) Yes, he is naked.
2) Yes, those are SOCKS on his arms. Those are his superhero arm shields and muscle guards.
3) Yes, that is his flying dragon in his arms.
4) Yes, that IS a bamboo stick used for creating kabobs in the kitchen but handy as a Ninja Demon Baby weapon.
5) No, I have not been LYING all this time about just how imaginative . . . AND how naked he is.
6) Yes, it is hard for me to maintain a straight face when he comes into my office dressed this way, but I do.
7) Yes, I know. When he starts kindergarten in a year and a half they REALLY will not know what to do with him.
8) If you traveled here from my author site here, and yesterday's post, YES, he really DID single-handedly BREAK a car. A real car. Like one you drive. Yeah. I know. Unbelievable.
9) Yes. That is gray hair on my head.
10) Yes. Given his outfit of choice since he woke up this morning, that IS a smile on my face.

Least he won't have to worry about a cape getting in the way like those superheros on The Incredibles.

Travis:
Precisely! It's absolutely brilliant, when you think about it. ;-)

I got my desk calendar today. Thanks so much!

I can't stop laughing at the car! I really can't. I even wrote about Demon Baby and the car in my latest letter to Glenn. I can't believe it!

Glad you are laughing at MY poor car. ;-)

Sock armlets!!! I have some that he would LOVE. They have skulls on the ends of em, they would accentuate his nakedness perfectly. You are so lucky to have such a cutie.

Realm:
OOOH. He would love skeletons. That gives me ideas for when I next go shopping.

I love that he doesn't pick plain old white gym socks - he gets something fancy (and they look soft).

He would certainly brighten my day if he walked into my office looking like that. ;)

Melanie:
Nope. Not gym socks. He has good taste.

The more I read about his, um, escapades, the more I'm thinking that there needs to be insurance for parents. Not your ordinarly life, health, auto or home insurance. I'm fairly certain most homeowners or auto insurance policies don't cover destruction caused by children. So maybe one of the insurance companies out there could come up with a policy that covers repairs & replacement of items damaged by kids, say 1 - 16?

GREAT idea! In fact, that will inspire a post. I can recount all the home damage done by Demon Baby. Starting with my ceiling. And that is a story in an of itself.
