Handy Man(ny)

About a month or 2 ago, my mom showed me a cool bed for Gavin on Bailey's Furniture's website.

I showed Gavin, and of course he really wanted it. So we talked to Daddy. I was really surprised when Erin said that he could build him one. With the slide, too! Now, I was a bit skeptical, I will admit, but after I saw the result...WOW!! I have my very own Handy Manny in the house! :)

Gavin absolutely loves his bed, I mean how could he not? It has a slide!! I told Erin that since he made such an awesome bed for Gavin, I have a few projects for him now...hmmm, maybe he's thinking that building the bed wasn't such a good idea after all!!

El Tigre and the Fantastic Four (according to Gavin) plus one

Lately, Gavin has been infatuated with El Tigre. El Tigre is a cartoon on Nickelodeon that we let him watch--occasionally. We only let him watch it occasionally because it seems like it brings out the wild side in him. Let me explain about El Tigre...he is a boy who has a wrestling family and his alter ego is a wrestler (a tiger). So when he "transforms" he puts claws out and says "EL TIGRE!!".
Gavin has this down to a tee. Unfortunately its awfully annoying since he only does it when he is in trouble and doesn't want to listen to what we have to say.

Another "transformation" Gavin goes through is Spiderman. This one I can tolerate a bit more than El Tigre. He uses this transformation for just about anything. Is there a ghost in the house? Call Spiderman! He'll shoot webs and make the ghost go away! Time to rough-house with Daddy? Spiderman can kick his butt! In trouble with the parents? No problem for Spiderman!
Caring child that he is, Gavin hasn't forgotten that maybe we all want alter egos, too. Let me introduce the Fantastic Four...
drumroll please...
Gavin is, of course, Spiderman
Daddy is Wolverine
Mommy is "Spiderman Girl" (thats what Gavin calls her) and wait...mommy is special so she has TWO alter egos...Emma Frost (X Men)
Bekah J is...The Human Torch. Umm, okay.
And lets not forget Grandma...she gets to be The Thing. *giggle*, *snort*

Love the imagination this kiddo has...don't even get him started on Ben 10. He'll do ALL the transformations, which ever one is suitable for the moment!!
