Spiderman Goes to School

Last night, the kids and I went to a fall festival.  Ben had his face painted as Spiderman.  When we got home, I told Ben that he would have to wash it off. He insisted on sleeping as Spiderman.  Fine. So I told him that he would have to wash his face in the morning before going to school.  Today was Tim's day off so I left the morning routine to him. I could hear Ben arguing with his dad about the face painting and I could tell that Tim was getting a little aggravated. The bus was expected to arrive soon so Tim gave up the battle and Ben (aka Spiderman) won.  I warned Ben that his teacher might make him wash his face after he arrived to school. Tim got the kids to the bus stop just in time. 

Soon after the kids left for school, I began to worry about Ben getting in trouble for his painted face. I considered calling the school to let the secretary know what was going on. I needed to call anyway to let them know that Jackie was going to be picked up by her physical therapist.  When I called about the latter, I forgot to explain about Ben.  So, I emailed his teacher.  She emailed me back and admitted that she was taken aback by Ben's face but she didn't make a big deal about it and neither did anyone else.  Good, I thought. 

When I picked up Ben after school, I asked him if anyone said anything about his face. He exclaimed "a lot!" Then he was so excited as he told me that two people asked for his autograph and he gave them his autograph.  I asked if his teacher said anything. He shook his head and then said that Mrs. W told him that she likes his other face better and that she hopes to see that one tomorrow.  I couldn't help but laugh hysterically. He was so excited about his celebrity status.

When we arrived home, I took Ben's picture for memory's sake. Then Ben told me to put his funny story on Facebook so everybody can see it. So, I did put it on Facebook. And now I'm writing about it so he can share this funny story one day with his own children.
