Lone Free: The Superheroes Under the Bed

In her latest posts, local parenting blogger Melanie is puzzled about her son’s lack of interest in superheroes, and fascinated by his interest in vehicles.

“Don’t worry. He’ll grow out of it.” Well, I’m not worried. And I also don’t think he’ll grow out of it. Our son’s been obsessed with vehicles since the age of 18 mos., when he got a board book about construction vehicles called “Diggers and Dumpers.” His first non-needful word (i.e., after “mommy,” “daddy,” “blankie,” and “paci”) was “dumper.” He’s five-and-a-half now, and the obsession hasn’t waned; it’s just been refined.
