.my superman

Chris & I played hooky on Friday and spent the day out of the city. Definitely part of our Operation: Heal our Hearts summer! We started off with our favorite breakfast sandwiches and iced coffees then hopped into our car and headed to the King of Prussia mall. It was pay day so we knew we were going to treat ourselves! We deserved it. 

After a little shopping spree, we went to see Superman in IMAX and 3D. It was great! Have you seen the 3D glasses these days? So goofy! (see below)

It was your typical Superman story of Clark Kent saving Lois Lane along the rest of the world. Although, this version of Lois Lane was a tad different - she was much less annoying. In the past, all she did was snoop and make a mess wherever she went digging.

Maybe this is my new found outlook on life kicking in or maybe it is because I am no longer 12 years old watching Superman but I realized that Lois helped Superman a lot too. She turned out to be very trustworthy, selfless, and courageous especially in the time of an attack - she even helped save the world! I love that. There are days I feel strong and days I feel weak.  We take turns being the hero in our relationship.


  1. I just found your blog through your post on Stillborn and Still Breathing. Thank you for sharing - I can relate to everything I've read so far. Anyway... what prompted me to comment... I love your idea of taking turns being the super-hero for each other. It's so true, even if I usually feel like I'm the one needing the saving. :)

    1. Hi, Shane! So glad you took the time to read my blog. If you have a blog I'd love to follow it, I am so interested in seeing how other moms are healing. This process is tough. I go through waves of feeling strong and then there are some days/weeks I feel incredibly sad and weak. I am very thankful we are not alone though and that we have this little community that allows us to be honest and open with another. Keep in touch! Colleen
