We start out being our children's heroes and strive to keep that position. Slowly, we start to see the eyes roll, the embarrassed looks when we sing, etc. On the other hand, to us, they never stop being our little heroes! We're so proud of that first step! That first symbol that starts to resemble a letter goes right up on the fridge. That first piano recital brings tears to our eyes. They're our little Michael Phelps's, our Little Mozarts, our Little Picassos...they're our hearts...our heroes...our superheroes!
