Recently, our friend Shanna asked gnomi and me how we go about explaining the "bad guys" to Muffin and Squeaker when we talk about superheroes, and this prompted me to craft my current The Brookline Parent column on the topic of superheroes in general.
So in today's The Brookline Parent column for Brookline Patch, I talk a little bit about how my own love of superheroes developed and how I'm hoping to inculcate the same in the kids.
Go read Up in the Sky! Superheroes! If nothing else, you'll see a picture of Muffin holding her favorite book and in her superhero disguise.
