As the proud father of two boys aged 4 and 2, I just had to share this story I saw yesterday. I could picture this exact scenario happening with my eldest son.
At the grocery store a 4-year-old boy is running around doing superhero moves with a fierce expression and making a bit of a spectacle of himself.
A lady says, “Hello, young man, what’s your name?”
In his best growly, grown-up voice, he says “I’m BATMAN.”
The lady laughs. “I mean, what’s your real name?”
Again: “I’m BATMAN!”
“No, what’s your actual real name?”
(long pause and then in a whisper while looking to see is anyone was looking)
“It’s really Bruce Wayne.”
