Addition to the family

Don't get excited.  No-one's pregnant.  And no, we didn't get another puppy.

I've introduced you all to Irish Woman's alternate identity, Gopher Girl.  She takes on this guise when she indulges in the irrational need to dig up the yard, garden, or pond.

Well, that trait appears to follow her bloodline.  This weekend, BooBoo transformed into Captain Chaos!.*    The transformation apparently began while I was at the NRA Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh, but became very evident on Saturday.

He's discovered superheroes, and marketing works.  He's begun wearing towels and sheets as a cape, racing through the house, climbing to ever-increasing heights, and jumping from them.  This was very evident when he played at the zoo's playground on Sunday.

So far, this new obsession hasn't caused any injuries that required more than a kiss.  However, he may be causing damage to his mother's cardio-vascular system as it goes from normal to oh-Lord-he's-climbing-the-curtains-again and back several times a day.

Hopefully, Captain Chaos! will be a rare visitor to the house.  He's a good guy, but he can be a bit destructive in his enthusiasm.  Oh well, at least he's not fixated on professional wrestling.

*The exclamation point is part of the name, like when you say Blackhawk!.

So, chaotic good, and not chaotic evil? That's something, at least.

Howabout you don't let him see any Calvin and Hobbes comics till he moves out...

So, has he seen Cannonball Run yet?

Captain Chaos! indeed. :)

He's more of a chaotic neutral. Not really trying to cause damage, but not really able to care when something gets broken.

And I named him that specifically because he goes "Dun Dun Dunnnnnn!" when he's playing, and his favorite 'cape' is bright red.
