Running from the Law: Superbaby

Thursday, December 29, 2011


The following conversation actually happened.

Ryan:  I'm a little concerned because Mac's birthstone (emerald) looks like Kryptonite.

Me: Uhhh...

Ryan: Well, it could have weakening powers on him and render him unable to defend himself.  

Me: Ummm...

Ryan: Maybe we could somehow arrange for the baby to come a few weeks early or even a few weeks late to avoid the entire month of May?

Me: That's not really how things work...

Ryan: Well, you know, maybe we'll get lucky and having a May birthday could mean that he'll build up a strong resistance to Kryptonite.

Me: Yeah.  Fingers crossed.


  1. If you do have a baby in April his birthstones will be diamonds and sapphire (jackpot!) And your concerned husband can gift you an eternity band with those gems as a push present. It's never too early to start thinking of those things. :)

  2. LOL - love it! At least he's concerned about the important stuff! ;-)

  3. Haha! I love it. I'm leaning towards your baby building up an immunity to Kryptonite.

  4. OMG, are you married to my husband? haha, sounds like something Kevin would say!

  5. Okay, let me guess...did Ryan wear the cape as a little boy? Every little boy has a superhero, maybe Ryan is tring to pass his on.

  6. Love this! Belated congrats on your future little one :)
