Two minutes ago…
Nina: (following Gabe to the door) Mommy, I want to put my cherry boots on!
Me: Honey, Daddy’s going to a meeting. We can’t go.
Me: Because it’s just for Daddy.
Gabe: (to Nina) When Daddy gets back, he’ll take you for a walk in the snow, okay?
Nina: (beaming, turns to me) Mommy, you can’t go with us. We’re super heroes.
Just to clarify–this didn’t hurt my feelings. I was rolling (ROLLING) with laughter for a good 5 minutes after she said this. I seriously couldn’t stop laughing. But I will still accept hugs and such.
EDIT (1:32pm): Gabe’s car got a flat tire on the way home from his meeting, and I had to go “rescue” him. Who’s the Super Hero now, Nina?
