Come on moms and dads, I know I'm not the only one who has said something like this! I even chuckled after I said this to my 3 year old because it was so natural and fit right in to what was happening at the time, but I then pictured what my brother (who doesn't have any kiddos) would think if he heard me say this in such a comfortable tone. And I'm sure if I think hard enough I can come up with plenty of strange phrases addressed to a number of action heroes.
There have been so many great responses to the NY Times article from parents and non-parents sharing all their hilarious stories, so stay tuned for a bunch to be shared here soon!! I just know 'talking to superheroes' will be revisited shortly and curiously await your words of 'wisdom.' Keep 'em coming: firstname.lastname@example.org
