Call Me Underdog

If you're my Facebook friend (and if you're not, you should be!) you might have already learned about Preston's obsession with Underdog. He and Haley both love to watch the cartoons, but Preston has lately decided that he is Underdog.

He is to be called Underdog at all times. He won't answer to anything else. So around our house lately, it's "Underdog, eat your dinner." "Underdog, it's time for bed." and even "Underdog, say your prayers."

He also refers to me as Sweet Mommy (Sweet Polly is the heroine in the Underdog cartoons) and insists on rescuing me from imagined peril many times each day.

Part of his obsession is his love of singing the theme song... in his own special way.

To translate:
Underdog, Underdog.
Underdog, Underdog.
Speed of lightning, roar of thunder.

I don't know how Hi-ho-the-der-i-o came to be mixed into the song! =)

That is too precious! Jake went through a phase where we had to call him spiderman all the time and Brynna went through a phase where I had to call her puppy. I love kids!
