The other day my 5 year old and I were lying on the bed reading our own books after shower time.
I was reading a wonderful book and Caroline was looking at a Wonder Woman book she had chosen from the library.
I was enjoying our calm moment together when suddenly Caroline said with a sigh, “I guess I’ll never know who my real parents are.”
And then she continued reading as if she had just stated she wanted a glass of water.
I paused for a moment debating my options. After all, I do have a 6 inch scar proving that this kid came from my body. I decided to run with it.
“Who are your real parents?”
“They’re super heroes.”
“What super power do they have?”
“They can fly.”
“I wish Daddy and I had super powers like that.”
“I love you Caroline.”
“I love you too Mommy.”
