Tonight I picked Lele up from daycare right after work. I walk into the classroom and she’s on the blue carpet playing with some toys with five boys playing near her. I walk over to her and the boys start telling me the super heroes they’re going to be. “I’m going to be Captain America,” one says. “I’m going to be superman,” says a blond boy with his arms stretched to the ceiling. Each of the boys chime in with their superhero of choice. Then Aleah says, “Dad, I think I’ll just be me. I like being me.” Melted my damn heart.
