Atticus reached gold member status in his 2nd grade 100-Book Club and received a free hot chocolate at his friend Eli's mom's coffee house. So for our mom-kid date he asked to go redeem his certificate and bring his comic-book-idea book and some paper. So we came up with a story plot and a drew crazy characters. Then we gave them back stories and flaws. And then Atticus designed a crazy machine that sucks bad guys into this system of wheels and tubes and turns them into good guys. And that was our very-Atticus evening together.
