“Can I make these bigger so I can give them to Ick Ick?” asked 4 year old Dylan as he was pulling on and stretching his SpiderMan pajamas. “What do you mean? ” I replied.
“I want to make my Spiderman Pajamas bigger so Uncle Ick Ick can wear them and I want to change them from Spiderman to Superman!” exclaimed Dylan with a sparkle in his eye.
“Hmmm, I’m not sure we can really stretch them big enough so they will fit him but we can try! Why do you want to change them to Superman?” I asked. “Because Uncle Ick Ick is a doctor and he saves people, so he is Superman.”
From the heart of a 4 year old.
Attempting to stretch the pajamas was fun but impossible. Since we weren’t able to stretch the size 5T pj’s into large man’s sized pajamas, we settled for drawing a picture of Superman and will send it to Eric (Ick Ick,) in the mail (Ick Ick is how the kids pronounce Eric. Eric is an Er doctor in OKC- He is my son).
Thank you health care workers. I appreciate your tireless effort!
