Trainmaster-superhero-skater

...and catcher-ballerina-princess

You've heard of producer-directors, singer-songwriters, player-coaches. Our famiily is similarly hyphenated.

When Augie is wearing a cowboy hat he labels himself Cowboy Augie, and then he adds whatever activity he's doing. So we have Cowboy-Drummer Augie followed by Cowboy-Batter Augie, etc.

Last week he came in modeling his new roller skates and helmet, along with Spiderman pads and his well loved Thomas the Tank Engine shirt. (In fairness, he did not actually label himself that day.)

Meanwhile Vi showed up in her tutu and a princess shirt. She mentioned dancing, but the next moment she donned the catcher's mask Pa made recently.

So there you have it. Multiple interests, multiple identities, and hyphenation all over the place.

It reminds me of a Halloween over a decade ago, when my son insisted he was a ninja ghost king. He wore a crown, a sheet, and rubber sais and nunchaku around his waist and neck.

All you can do is to take the pictures.

Hey Blissed-Out! I'm an author-artist-masterspy-surrealist-gigolo. As I'm so extensively hyphenated, perhaps we're related? Indigo

You have the cutest grandkids ever! I love the pictures, showing how individual in apparel kids can be. I can hear the photographer, "wait right there, don't move while I get the camera!"

The Good Cook said...

Oh, I wish we could hyphenate all of our life. Those grandlittles are precious!

They sound like wonderfully fun kids. You're so lucky that you get to spend time with them on a regular basis.

Chantel said...

Aw Bliss--now I'm seriously considering wearing a tutu and a hockey mask for halloween this year! lol

So cute
my Grands and daycare kids spend a lot of time in dress-up clothes. I have a hard time getting them to change in the bathroom or laundry room. There is only one boy...but he is 3 1/2 so we need to practice a little modesty. (o:
Love the catchers mask (o:

To have the imagination, innocence and energy of a child for just one day! What a splendid vacation that would be.

Too unbearably cute! They will each no doubt be show-stopping images to share when they bring boyfriends/girlfriends home. :-)
