Heroic Giveaway!

I learned about this FABULOUS giveaway through Everything Etsy and just HAD to share it with everyone!

(Click link under the picture or HERE for full details)

Ok, so perhaps some of you are wondering what in the world you might do with a Custom Superhero Cape.  Fair enough.  Indulge me.

We have a three-year-old named Johnathan (a.k.a. Bubba) in our house who likes superheroes.  Wait.  Likes doesn't even begin to cover it.  Johnathan LOVES superheroes.  He is CrAzY for superheroes!  He has a one-piece Spiderman jumpsuit pajama set that is hilarious - but he LOVES.  He recently acquired (thanks to Grandma and the fine people at the Salvation Army) a Batman costume for Halloween complete with cape for $4.00.  Sure, it's a little too small, but seriously, passing it up would have been a crime.

Johnathan would pretty much be accepting of any superhero.  Superman is cool, Iron Man rocks his world!  And don't even get me started on Buzz Lightyear, you have NO idea.  When you're 3, the whole superhero world is excitement beyond belief.   

Not to mention the fact that Johnathan IS his mother's very own superhero: BUBBA-MAN!!!

Johnathan has endured quite a bit over the last few months with his daddy passing away, moving to another state and learning all the rules and regs that come with living at Grandma and Grandpa's house.  Most days he is getting in trouble for something - hello, he's 3 - or TRYING to learn a valuable life lesson.  Sometimes I look at his big, puppy dog eyes and see LOTS of energy, a hilarious sense of humor and a frustrated soul.  If that isn't the recipe for a superhero in the making, I don't know what is.

So. . . I invite you all to look into your lives for your own superheroes and register to win them this Custom Superhero Cape too.  I'm telling you, just envisioning the look on Johnathan's face if he gets to run around with a custom cape with a huge "B" for BubbaMan on it brings a tear to my eye.
I will wish you all luck, while at the same time saying two little prayers:

1.  Johnathan, Grandma is going to try really hard to win you this cape.  You deserve it, buddy.

2.  Rest in peace, Michael.  We are doing our best to help raise your little superhero down here.  We know he misses you.
