Adia has discovered superheroes. I left some comics lying around, and she thumbed through them. Rather than being a "Mermaid Madeleine Princess" for Halloween, she wants to be a "Mermaid Madeleine Wonder Woman." Yesterday I got home from my daily run she met me at the top of the stairs.
"I'm Evil Batman and Mom is Wonder Woman."
"Cool," I said, expecting to be promptly informed that I was Superman or Good Batman or some complimentary hero.
"You're Evil Batman too. And we punch each other. Pyew Pyew Pyew!"
The last is meant to represent laser-gun noises. I have never been prouder of her than I am right now.
I was holding Sam later that day when she came in, still pyew-pyewing me. "Is Sam Robin?" I asked. Sam promptly cooed a cute little coo like he does. "Who is Robin?" Adia asked. "Batman's friend," I said.
Adia hugged Sam and kissed him. "Batman gives Robin lots of hugs and kisses because he loves him."
