My wife and I took my 5-year-old cousin, Hunter, to see The Dark Knight Rises. This was a huge step for us. We’ve never been alone with a child longer than a couple hours. We had a good time. I’m proud of Hunter for the Batman love. I’m successfully inserting comic book knowledge into his little brain.
After the movie, Hunter came over to stay the night at our place. In the morning we had breakfast, played with legos, and watched Tangled and Despicable Me. Basically a normal morning for us (it was nice to have Hunter there to make it less weird). We’re no closer to wanting kids of our own, but it was fun to have Hunter visit. He’s a real champ, and a budding comic fan. It’s great to see the future of comic fandom grow.
