I was at the grocery store earlier, poking at tomatoes in the produce section, when I noticed a little boy (couldn't have been older than six) dressed as Batman -- black cowl and blue cape, logo shirt, the works. I didn't immediately see a parent, but soon heard a woman's voice calling, "Gavin! Gavin, over here." My eyes followed the voice to Gavin's mother, who was wearing a Superman shirt. And a red cape. My first thought was, "coolest mom ever," but it got better. Because when Gavin failed to come over, Super-mom dropped her voice a bit and said "Come on, Bruce, let's go." And he looked up immediately, and ran to hold her hand as they walked around the corner.

I just hope she didn't park down an alley.

Odds are, she's gonna meet some random bald guy in a suit in that alley.
