The Bean is slowly dipping his toe into the world of super heroes. Though he is not quite ready to trade Spider-Man for Lightning McQueen or stop watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in favor of Batman, he is getting more inquisitive about pop culture’s costumed heroes. Thankfully, there are a couple of The Bean’s pre-school friends who seem to be guiding his interest. Recently, the Bean was invited to one of their birthday parties and I was thrilled to learn it was a superhero themed costume party.
“So who does the Bean want to be?” I asked WonderWife™ when she told me about the event.
“He picked Robin.”
“Robin?” I asked incredulously. “Robin?”
“Robin’s not a superhero," I said glumly, "He’s a sidekick.”
