Zoë flipped through the little booklet that came with my face paint kit and decided that she wanted an eye mask in purple and pink. Her wish was my command. She wanted some glitters. She got glitters. She was pretty pleased with herself after she checked herself out in the mirror.
She was eager to show off her mask to her friends, so our helper took her downstairs to play while I do up Josh.
Josh wanted to be a superhero, but he did not like any of the ones pictured on the booklet. He asked to me to make one up… and he wanted a green face. He has a thing about having a green face (see here). I think I turned him into a villain more than a superhero.
BUT, like Zoë, he was really stoked. He started brandishing his sword about, making fierce-like faces. Then Zoë came home and took one look at Josh and cried, “I want to be a superhero!”
*Slaps head* This has been happening a lot of late. Whatever Josh has, whatever Josh does, she has to have, she has to do. No matter if it doesn’t make sense for her to have the same or for her to do the same thing. So now that she has it in her pretty little head that she wants to be a superhero just like Josh, I will have to deliver or I’ll never hear the end of it. I promised that I’ll make her into a superhero tomorrow. I’ve learned to pick my battles.
