Superhero Month: CAPTAIN AMERICA

Wouldn't it be interesting to do a mini series related to Heros and Parenting. Hmmm?  What a novel idea.  Hello Marvel can you hear me? 

While parents among us are everyday heros juggling several responsibilities and taking on several roles, not much has been done with our superhero counter parts.  Imagine Captain America coming home after a hard day's work with the Avengers only to take on the demanding role of parenthood: preparing breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, monitoring homework, facilitating sibling rivalry, sleep deprivation, picking up barfy messes, poop disasters, laundry and household maintenance, and doing it all with great enthusiasm and smiles day after day after day. My hats off to you Captain, and to all the countless parents who pull this stuff off with ease.

  1. It makes me think which superheroes would even consider being parents. And then they wouldn't be able to use the time tested admonitions that parents typically use, like, "So, if Joe jumps off a bridge, you would too?"
