We've been trying to explain to Nicolas that superheroes are not real, that what you see on TV even though it looks very real is not, Matt told him your toys can't talk, they are not real, Nicolas said "yes they can, look ... " as he pushed the button on Buzz and the little toy talked, Matt told him, ok but he can't answer you questions, look "Buzz, how are you today?" as he pushed the button and buzz answered the same recording phrase.

Matt tried to tell him "real superheroes" are firemen or policemen or nurses or people that do good to others without waiting anything in return, you could tell his little wheels were turning but for the talk we had last night I think we are going to have to reinforce this topic a whole lot more :)

Me:  "Nicolas, is there anything you would like to talk about tonight?"
Nicolas: "Uhm ... superheroes!!!"

Me: "Ok ... what do you like about Superheroes?"
N: "When I grow up I want to be one ..."

M: oh really?
N: Yes I want to be the kind that flies!!!!!!

M: Oh I wish I could fly too, that way I could go visit my mom in Chile whenever I feel like seeing her. (Mom has been with us for 3 months and a week, she's leaving this coming Sat)
N: YEAH MOMMY, I LIKE THAT TOO!!   I'm going to wear shoes and looooong socks!  What are you going to wear mommy?

M: Uhm, boots (I'm thinking about wonder woman, man I wish I could have her little waist!)
N: What else?
M: a cape
N: What else?
M: gloves

M: I love you too my boy!!
