The other day, as my husband and I got breakfast ready for the family, she strolled into the kitchen in her new 'rock star' pajamas.
"Mom, Wonder Woman has super-panties," she declared. "I like them."
Her dad had his back to us. I heard a snort and saw his shoulders start to shake as he fought to compose himself.
Playing along, I replied, "Well, honey, she walks around in her super-panties because she wants to embarrass the bad guys. As soon as they see her, they drop the loot to cover their eyes."
At that point, Dad regained control -- at least long enough to give us both a lesson in superhero powers. "Actually," directing a pointed look at me, "Wonder Woman has a magic lasso and bracelets that make bullets bounce off and an invisible plane." Then, with a smirk, "maybe her super-panties are powerful enough to make her plane disappear."
My daughter's look was deadpan.
There was a meaningful pause.
"She does that with her super-breasts."
