superman, batman, ironman, power rangers, pirates. superheroes come in distinctive disguises and colors. they battle with an array of weapons and gadgets. and they have different traits and superhuman abilities. my mighty duo is equally captivated and enthralled by all superheroes.

on a daily basis you will find my pair rummaging thru their “dress up bin” in search of the perfect accessories to enhance their powerful character. they run through our home fighting imaginary villains, protecting the world, and doing good deeds. I watch them from the far end of the house. I am inspired by their imaginations that tell a thousand stories. their thoughts are so loud I can hear them from here. I see them feeling brave, fearless, and in control of their worlds.

i revel in this magical, homey life my children have created. but, i often wonder what will happen in a few short years when the mystery and magic begins to fade. will they feel betrayed? will they carry with them the confidence, desire to help others, and sweetness of life they’ve learned thru play? will they feel sad? I know it makes me sad to even think of the day when the dress up bin begins to collect dust. when i am no longer tripping over swords and masks. when the rules of the game change. but i know the day will come. the game will change. it always does.
