As I have mentioned (several times) before, my girls have very different personalities. Maggie is very much a girly-girl and loves to play with dolls and Barbies, doesn’t much care for getting dirty, and loves to wear pretty dresses and sandals. Aleita, on the other hand, is somewhat of a brute. She likes to play with Power Rangers and Superheroes, loves to play outside and get dirty, and loves to wear “fast” tennis shoes. The girls have already decided their costumes for Halloween this year. Maggie is going to be a cheerleader, and Aleita, Batgirl.

A few weeks ago, Aleita was delighted to find out that they were going to have “Superhero” week in her room at her preschool. That week’s theme was devoted to reading about Superheroes, doing art projects related to Superheroes, and even playing dressup like a Superhero - - by far, her favorite activity that week. I couldn’t resist getting some pictures of her when she brought her “costume” home. She was slightly devastated when it had to be thrown away after she had played with it until it fell apart.

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's SUPERLETA!

Grandma Mary and I are helping each other up off the floor, Can't stop laughing long enough to type this. we'll be looking for a Super Hero costume to replace the MIA one that served so well, maybe something like The Incredibles movie characters?
