Last night, we sat down with the kids and watched SuperHero videos on YouTube. It was their first exposure to the classic Superman, Batman, Robin, and the defense of good on behalf of the universe. As I greeted Jacob this morning, I couldn't help but notice his outfit of solid blue T-shirt, blue pajama pants, and blue socks with a hole in one of them. His first words to me were, "I'm Superman today and tomorrow I'm going to be Batman!" Clearly, "superhero fever" has overtaken our house. This was evidenced in the parade of Superheroes down the hallway as I called my children for breakfast. First, Jake the Superman, came flying down the hall. Next came Savannah the BatGirl prancing along on tippytoes as only a BatGirl can. Last, but definitely not the least, marched Elijah with a stuffed animal stuck under his red pajama shirt. In his deepest superhero voice, he was bellowing, "Ho,ho ho, Mewwy Cwistmas!"
