heroes in a half shell?

i have this child who is obsessed with teenage mutant ninja turtles. who can't wait for his own chance to eat radioactive slime. who spends his days karate kicking and chopping and tackling anyone he can. his latest victim:


 the ER doctor thought it was just nursemaid's elbow. he popped it back in place and she seemed fine. but then the next day he called and said the radiologist thought she might have a hairline fracture. so she needed a splint, just in case.


she is getting a lot of extra kisses because it is just so adorable and sad. when the doctor was wrapping her up and putting on a sling she was looking very pleased and she whispered, "dad, i look like a mail carrier."

A mail carrier? I don't get it. I love kids' thought process. I think she has earned the role of Splinter (the boss of the turtles) Your ninja should meet my ninjas sometime- as I am reading your blog I now have a broken glass hurricane candle holder and a child with a cut hand and a child with a bloody nose and 4 year old trying to help them- I really just don't want to know the story behind it, but i better go.
