Two Things

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?
