See, while the munchkin is fully obsessed with all things superhero-related, his second obsession is knights. He loves the new show "Mike the Knight" on Nick Jr and one of his favorite things to do is to run around the house with his foam shield and sword and pretend to be a knight.
So I started drawing a castle with these windows on my trusty graph paper. And then, the following conversation ensued...
Munchkin: What are you drawing, Mommy?
Me: A castle.
Munchkin: What for?
Me: Your quilt.
Munchkin: Oh. But Mommy, superheroes don't live in castles.
Me: I know. But maybe one side could have superheroes and one side could have a castle.
Munchkin: (thinks about it for a moment, then smiles) That's a really good idea, Mommy.
Munchkin: Will it be ready for bedtime tonight?
Me: Um....no, baby. Not for a little while yet.
Munchkin: Tomorrow night then?
So...I think I'm going to do a patchwork castle on the back. Goodness knows I've got plenty of gray fabrics to work with!
Now if only I could decide what to do with the front!
