Real Life Superheroes
Yesterday, our rental car got stuck in mud chips in a very tight parking lot. (Yeah, we aren't having the best car luck these days.) We were trying to get out of our impossibly tiny parking spot and the car just started spinning wheels in the mud. Papa Bear and I were trying everything we could and a wonderful man came over and asked if he could help. He was a big bear of a man and stood at the front of the car and rocked it back and forth until it got traction. Little Man was convinced that Superman came and pushed our car out of the mud because only Superman can lift cars. So then today at the park there was a dad wearing a superman shirt and Little Man went over to him and asked him if he was the Superman that picked up our car and moved it. He might not get the exact name of the superhero right, but he sure does know how to recognize a hero when he sees one. It isn't often that we get rescued by actual heroes, but when we do, it is fine with me if Little Man adds a bit of super to the story.
