My Little Superhero

Thank you to General Mills for sponsoring this post about finding the superhero in yourself. #SuperHeroing

By day she’s known as Brecken. The kind of shy (until she gets to know you) 4-year old who loves all things blue and green. But as the sun begins to set, a change begins. She’s no longer the kid who is being mopey because I’ve made her go for a walk, she becomes Forest Girl and has superhero powers. With a simple wave of her hand, she chops down trees and brush so the hikers can make it through the forest. Before last night, I had never heard of Forest Girl and wondered where she picked that up. Usually her role playing has to do with a certain Disney movie that shall remain nameless but this time, she channeled someone else.

Finally, it hit me. A few weeks ago in our box of General Mills cereal, she received her first ever comic books, the Justice League series. In those books she was introduced to the classic superheroes: Superman, Flash Gordon and of course her favorite, Wonder Woman.

It takes a lot for Brecken, aka Forest Girl, to keep up her energy level so starting the day with a good breakfast is key. Somedays she eats breakfast at her school and on others she eats it home so we can spend a few extra minutes together. One of her favorite cereals is Honey Nut Cheerios (Cinnamon Toast Crunch is one of my favorites).

She likes the sweet taste and I like that she eats all of her breakfast. Being a superhero is a tough job. You have to fight villains, eat your breakfast AND listen to your mom.
