Item one – Conversation between me and the Hatchling this afternoon, as she’s running around with her superhero “cape” on (a big silk scarf she ties around her neck):
Hatchling: I superhewwo!
Me: You are a superhero.
Hatchling: Fwy weawwy fast.
Me: You sure are flying fast. Go, go, go!
Hatchling (stopping and looking right at me): I BATMAN.
Me: You’re Batman?!
Hatchling: Yeah, dat’s wight. I BATMAN!!!!
Her father is so proud.
Item Two – I’ve been scanning in some old family photos just so I have them digitally, and I came across this one of me and my parents circa 1972. I’m not normally at a loss for words, but … wow. Kind of explains a lot, doesn’t it?
