One of the cable-channels is rerunning Lois and Clark episodes from the nineties.I used to watch them in Miami, I liked them and I learned a lot of English from them. So it was mainly nostalgie I let Christopher watch it when I bumped in them when we were home, because of his throat infection.
The result? Of course he wanted to be Superman in the school's carnival. First I didn't worried, every second hand shop was full with customes, every one of them had two or three Superman in different sizes... Until the minute my boy announced what is want to be dressed up.In that minute they dissapeared without a trace, even though I went at least fifteen different shop. So what a mommy can do? Start new rounds, this time in fabric shops. I went to at least six different shops, at the end I found teh three colors in three different places. Compared to getting the material, cutting and sewing wasn't such a big deal.
