Superhero Day



Yesterday, our school had Superhero Day. All the students were encouraged to dress up as their favorite superhero. Or, even better, their real life super hero.

Sloane told me that she wanted to dress up as a teacher because "teachers are for sure SUPER heroes." Awwww... YAY!

So, I helped her. Lent her my clipboard and whistle. She asked to wear my name tag and I gave her that, too. She wore her cutest skirt and polished her new glasses.

A few minutes after we got to school, Sloane's teacher stuck her head in my room. She said, "I love it that Sloane came to school dressed as you."
WHAT?!??!



Sloane told me later. "Mommy, I'm not just any teacher. I'm you. My own superhero."



What do you say to that? How does one respond to such a gift?
Me?
I said, "Thank you, Lord. Thank you."

Tears would fill my eyes to have a child tell me those words. How beautiful and very fortunate you are.

awwwww... that is just the sweetest !!!

i hope she feels that way about you when she's a teenager....but soak it all in now, just in case.

i have a feeling though that she will always look up to you and that her love for you will always be present and wide open !

First of all.... a big THANK YOU for post.. 3 sweet comments all at once! Yes, it's a shame this seems to be our only means of communication. Sloane told me she was going to be a teacher for Super Hero Day. She's had the perfect role model.... Also, your photos are absolutely fantastic! Way to go girl! So glad you're finding such a wonderful avenue for all that creativity you've got bubbling up. xo dulcy

That's super that she looks up to you with admiration as her role model and hero.

Maybe she'll also want to be a teacher when she's older... the world needs good teachers :)
