A Superhero In Training

If you checked our Disney World ticker lately, which I do daily just in case it speeds up or something, you will see that we are down to barely three weeks until we leave for Disney World. Excited does not even begin to describe how we are all feeling right now, especially Chase. We talk about it multiple times a day and he is constantly talking about the different things we will be doing there and telling everyone we see about it. One of his biggest infatuations is that we will be flying on a plane to get there. He is intrigued by this since it will be his first time on a plane. While his father would rather drive and wants nothing to do with planes, Chase cannot wait.

On Mother's Day we were at Jeff's parents watching Air Force One. For those that have not seen it there is a scene where a tanker refueling Air Force One blows up. As Chase looked on in horror we quickly reassured him that this would NOT happen to our plane. He was ok with that and blew it off (Jeff hasn't... yet). In another scene passengers start parachuting from the plane. While I would never do that, Chase immediately told me he wanted to. So again, I said that would not be happening from our plane. Chase thought about it for a moment and then said, "Mommy, if you fall out of the plane I will catch you.... with my fishing pole." Boy, I sure feel safe. I think I have a Superhero in training.
