In my family, there's a big love of super heroes. My husband loves them. My brother loves them. My children love them.
So I shouldn't have been surprised when my children related to current events via the Superman films.
Much fuss was made over CNN's recent use of holograms during the election coverage. This lead the bigger kids to ask, "What are holograms?" Dh and I explained that it's when it appears that someone is in one place, but they're really in another.
To which Girl2 replied, "Oh, like the bad guys who really weren't in jail in Superman 2."
Yes, exactly like that.
