This week’s book is…

Hero Dad

Hero Dad by Melinda Hardin.*

It is a super cute story making soldiers look like the super heroes they are!

I love how they take parts of the things they wear and relate them to things that the super heroes in movies would have. Like not having an invisibility cloak; but having camouflage instead!

This one was probably my favorite!

The littles really enjoyed this one too! Especially Bug who is super into the whole super hero thing.

It’s been a hectic week so no art project this week; but we did have a fun conversation.

During our car ride to swim we talked about what a hero is and what they do and what makes Daddy a hero.


What is a hero?

Little Miss:  Someone who saves you.

Cuddle Bug:  Batman! (he also said he’s a super hero!)


What do heroes do?

Little Miss:  They help people and keep us safe.

Cuddle Bug:  They fly!


How do they keep us safe?

Little Miss:  By protecting us from bad guys, by doing their jobs, and doing a lot of other                          stuff.


Is Daddy a hero?

Little Miss:  Yes! Because he’s in the Army! Because they have weapons that help us stay                          safe from bad guys.

Cuddle Bug:  Because. Daddy can fly when he’s really Batman. (side note: he also says                                that Grampa is a hero and that his sister is a hero)


What are Daddy’s super powers?

Little Miss:  Protecting us and keeping us safe by calling the cops to get the robbers.

Cuddle Bug:  He can fly and jump!


Sorry Daddy, you have some BIG Batman shoes to fill according to Bug!

And of course it would not be a lovely car conversation without some fun, sibling arguing… *insert eye roll here*




Got to love that mom life!

Always the mediator, never the hero.

Ten books down, ten weeks down!
