The Hubs would hate that his alter ego / internet representation was Tim Allen, btw.

The Hubs:

Sarcastic. Epileptic. Gooey center (good with other people’s crying).  Eagle Scout. Works customer service / former call center monkey. Fixes anything with moving parts. Fan of motorcycles and power tools.

His Superpower is Dealing With It.

His totem animal is a Cat: “Pet me pet me pet me. We will never speak of this again.”

Cherub One:

He is Calvin.
He is Calvin.

Firstborn. HIGH ENERGY. So much energy, homg. Loves toys. Very verbal. Calls me “Mom.” He is ALL BOY, all the time.

He loves his baby sister, and his song for her when she cries is, “Baby Sister, don’t cry, don’t cry. Big Brother is here.” (It is about the most precious thing in the universe.)

His Superpower is Adorableness. He has known it since he was six months old. It is scary sometimes.

His totem animal is a Tornado.

Diabetic. Blind. One-legged. Complicated familial past. Adult child of alcoholics. Mark Twain lookalike. Roots for the Mariners and the Seahawks. Constantly watches / listens to TV, even when sleeping. We live with him because he can’t live by himself; he needs someone to take care of him. This usually falls to me.
