On one drive-way chalk-drawing day, our daughter drew this:
I was very impressed by her rendition of Batman.
But, then she informed me that it was not Batman.
This was her BROTHER.
Hmmm….I cannot imagine why…
But, what’s interesting to me is that it’s not just our 3 year old son who is into Super-Hero/ Star Wars/ Villain/ Robot dress-up.
Our 5 year old daughter surprised us recently with an intense “PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE” need for a Transformers Bumblebee costume.
Here, she told me to guess what she was. Can YOU guess?
Well, she’s a CAR, of course!
But, in truth, our daughter has a bit of a fancy streak in her. She doesn’t like me to pick her clothing out, anymore. The bohemian, rustic, matte and denim colors I love just aren’t sparkly enough for her. She can actually become pretty upset when I pull out a gray shirt that she just can’t stand because it’s so ugly and plain.
So, this Transformer get-up naturally followed- and it just cracks me up because it is just the perfect blend of tough yet pretty, rough yet accessorized, strong yet color-coordinated…
That headband and matching gray bow that bring out the chrome of the robotic gadgetry….
The blingy necklace that perfectly accents the ochre-colored metal reminiscent of the buzzing critter that gives Bumblebee his name….
And a golden bracelet that sparkles like the headlights of the vehicle he transforms into….
Is that a lego car she’s holding?
A lego-car building transformer for a daughter? That is just perfection in carbon form, I think.
Once we get her brother to stop stabbing random strangers with giant forks in Home Goods while he is pretending to be Aquaman ( dressed as Thor, the Super Hero du jour, of course), I can say that I’m 2 for 2 on the Carbon Perfection Generator Meter.
But, then again- That’s pretty darn creative of that little boy, isn’t it?
Alright, Alright. I’m officially 2 for 2!
SO….DO YOU HAVE MINI-SUPER HEROES, TOO?
DO THEY PUT THEIR OWN TWIST ON THEM?
