Super Heroes, Sporting Heroes and ME!

Just received a face time call from my eldest daughter Marie mother to Charlie and Holly the 6 year old terror twins.

At school today, they were given three questions to answer and give reasons why...

The questions were;

Who is your Sporting Hero;  Who is your Super Hero and finally; Who is your Family Hero;

Apparently Holly is being more than a little reticent in telling Mom and Dad who her choices were, at 6 years of age, reticence is something she is not usually so familiar with, as she normally never shuts up, but we love her to bits all the same and sometimes just that little bit more when she finally gets put to bed, but even then she normally battles with and wins against Mr Sandman for an hour or so....

Charlie's heroes, he told his Mom were and in no particular order that I know of, were:




Sporting Hero;  Mr Wayne Rooney, of Manchester United.  I've no idea when it comes to footballers, as you know I am not a big football fan, so I bow to Charlie's superior knowledge in this!












Super Hero;   Captain America, It was always going to be this with Charlie.  Even if he had been given a list with no Captain America on it it would still be Captain America, he just loves that guy... He like other Super Heroes too BUT Captain America is the dude as far as Charlie Kennedy is concerned and so that's fine with me.






Family Hero; Couldn't believe this when Marie told me as one would have expected a six year old to say his dad, sorry Peter, but I am sure that you are just as much his hero as I apparently am.  Yes folks, my 6 year old grandson, Master Charlie Kennedy, told his teacher and his classmates that his Family Hero was his GRANDDAD..... Now how cool is that

But before I get to carried away, apparently the reason I am his hero, at the moment is because:

a) I was a soldier - yes I was, and

b) (as he told his teachers and classmates) he lost a finger (long story)

So, I won out over dad because I was a soldier and because I have a digit less than his dad and probably because, when I go, which he tells me he hopes, will be a long time away, I have promised him that he can have the very cheap, but very reliable Timex watch that I am always wearing and that when you press the winder, the face lights up, and he, Charlie, just loves that watch. So, for my Hero Charlie it shall be his, but hopefully not for a very long time, and I hope he will still want it to remember his old nine fingered granddad by.....


CHARLIE KENNEDY - YOU ARE MY HERO TOO

  1. Congratulations, Grandpa Tom. No award will ever be more meaningful than knowing that you are Charlie's hero. I love his picture and can see why the little guy melts your heart. You have a beautiful, wonderful family, and you're the hero!

  3. Because you are totally cool! Super cool! I'd vote for you because of the finger if for no other reasons! That and you survived a fall from an AIRPLANE!

    Tell Charlie I'm with him!

  4. Jules, thanks for that.
    You have to love them unconditionally, so it is then doubly nice when they return it with something so unexpected xx
