butter works.

butter gets pine tree sap out of hair.
in case you were wondering.
as brennan was falling asleep tonight i sang him my favorite childhood song.
baby beluga.
i've sung it to him almost every night of his entire life.
sometimes he asks for twinkle twinkle little star when i'm done with baby beluga.
and then i hum the stay awake song from mary poppins as the cherry on top.
my favorite is when i get to hum that one when he is rolled off into dreamland.
i hum it b/c i can never remember all of the words.
so just as i was getting up from humming the stay awake song brennan's eyes sleepily opened.
"batman is real."
you bet he is i told him.
big smile on both of our faces.
and then with his eyes closed he very drowsily {with conviction} told me,
"i met the real spiderman, and i'm gonna tell every friend i ever meet that i met the real spiderman. yep."
and then he fell fast asleep as i walked out of the room.
{what brennan's hair looks like after he wears his spiderman beanie for 5 minutes.}

That last picture made me laugh out loud. There is something about little boys and their mamas, isn't there?
