The Incredibly Irritating Invasion of Captain Underpants

Captain Underpants has invaded our home.

Nico first discovered the Dav Pilkey series of "epic novels" one day when browsing at Mac's Backs. He was immediately hooked. He can read these books for hours at a stretch and is now even making his own abridged versions of these comic books.

One of my friends, a grade school teacher, detests these stories. I wasn't sure what the big deal was until I actually read one. Nico is constantly spouting nonsense about wedgies, talking toilets, poop and diapers.


I wonder how long this phase will last.

How long will this last?

Try forever. Men love fart jokes.

Jonathan is right. If you are lucky, he'll learn to do it only in the presence of his male friends sometime after junior high.

B finished the series and is awaiting the newest book to come out. Hey at least they're learning to love books (even if they are really gross icky books) lol :)
