My Superhero.


"Mama?," He says. "You be the villian and I'll be the superhero." He'll say again and again.

And we'll play and he'll laugh a laugh that comes so strong and deep from within as though it's come straight from his heart.

I'll give up the cat and mouse chase and he'll capture me claiming he's taking the Villian Mama to jail and he's won. He's saved the day and his grin goes from ear to ear.

Then he'll catch his breath and I'll tell him that I love him and he looks at me and says, "Well, I love you to the moon."

"I love you more than that." I say and he'll reply real simply that since he is the superhero I can't really love him more than he loves me.

I look at my superhero and wonder why the good Lord decided I deserved such a gift as this.

And there are days I really feel like a villian in his world, when I've raised my voice or not been slow to anger. Time out, I'll say for just the 13th time that morning. Yet, he loves me, despite me. To the moon, even. And he makes me feel like I'm a superhero mama. Even when I'm not.

Because he is my superhero and when he's not busy asking me to play the villian, I am his.
