Today is Superhero Day! Little Yum-Yum has gone to school dressed as his favourite superhero, Spider-Man! No, wait … Spider-Max!

I’ve spoken with some of the other children and asked what Superhero they are going to be. I get more grins than I do answers! They are so excited!

It’s also ‘Show & Tell’ day, so Max will be bringing along his Spider-Man toy.

Spider-Max ready for school. I didn’t have the usual battle trying to get him out of bed this morning … I wonder why?

Not so long ago, Little Yum-Yum revealed his new favourite superhero is Spider-Man. He also requested a Spider-Man toy from Santa, but received this costume instead! Yes folks, I am the proud mother of this little superhero!

An ideal choice for little Marvel fans, this Spider-Man costume from Marvel is sure to delight. The fancy dress costume features a padded all-in-one to create a muscular effect with light-up details and a hat to complete the look. ~ Tesco Direct

On the sleeve, there is a little light thingy (I’m laughing at myself because I don’t know what it’s called). Once pressed, aim in the dark onto a wall…

It’s Spider-Max’s signal!

The other day, I watched the Amazing Spider-Man 2. The end scene reminded me of Max. When I spoke to him about the little boy at the end, he said he still wanted to be an astronaut, but that he wanted to be Spider-Man too. However, he was unable to be the latter because he didn’t have a costume and he didn’t think he’d be good at it. It broke my heart. I told Little Yum-Yum he could be anything he wanted to be – including his superhero.

After the chat, I was still uneasy that he felt the way he did, so I found this clip and showed it to him a couple of times. We watched it from 1:00 to 2:22 which was the only part he needed to see. The costume and this clip changed his mind; he is Spider-Man.

To Maximus from Mummy:

Yes, you are son. The world is your oyster to be whoever you want to be. Your dream is to be an astronaut and to save people. You are an amazing little boy. Follow your dreams, my darling. Mummy is right here supporting you 100%. I love you so much!

The New Favourite Superhero is…

Out of the blue, Little Yum-Yum has decided this is now his favourite character. But it doesn’t stop there… He says he IS Spider-Man.

We popped to the shop, he spotted this magazine and wouldn’t leave without it.

It came with a window crawler, which entertained him for hours.

I guess that’s it. I have to admit Maximus is growing up. He’s no longer interested in programmes he used to watch because he’s a “big boy now”.  My goodness, he’s five years old in a couple of weeks, and I’m here wondering where the time has gone. It seems like just yesterday I had my Little Yum-Yum.
