#AtoZChallenge: D is for Dark Knight

Some toddler girls love Princess Sophia. Others love Doc McStuffins. Others — namely the ones whose moms have to Google characters that toddler girls are into — love Batman. And Superman. And all things Star Wars. (Sigh, and as of the last couple months or so, Peppa Pig.) But mainly Batman.

So, yeah, Baby Girl loves her some Dark Knight. Her love is so intense that some might even say that Baby Girl has a minor obsession with him. Others might say that there’d be a restraining order against her if Batman actually existed.

Climbing in the windows, snatching ya’ people up.

I can’t remember exactly when the lovefest started, but it was sometime between her first and second birthday. Her brother has a couple of Batman play sets, and she loves playing with the toys alongside Little Man. Baby Girl went through a phase where she refused to wear anything but her Batman t-shirts, wanted to wear the Batman pajamas every night, and had to carry her Batman stuffie everywhere. She had a Batman themed party for her birthday last year, too.

With the theme for this post in mind, I was scrolling through old Facebook and blog posts looking for some material for today and came across a few cute things.

The first one shows her getting her teeth brushed while wearing a Batman mask. She hates getting her teeth brushed. It’s one of those things that always ends up in a meltdown of epic proportions, no matter what we do. But then one night we put a Batman mask on her to so we could show her that superheroes brush their teeth, too.

It worked. For one night, we had an adorable Batman toddler getting her teeth brushed in our bathroom. For one night, because I don’t know where that particular mask is anymore.

The second shows Baby Girl not showing me any love on my birthday. Sigh. I know that Batman’s fond of making everything about him, but on my birthday, too? C’mon, man.

The third one shows how Baby Girl introduced herself a few times. Loads of cuteness if you witness it in person.

The fourth doodle shows that Baby Girl has some real game when it comes to getting sweets from her daddy. Rather than ask for an ice cream cone herself (and likely be denied), she asked for one for Batman. And she got it. She claimed that they were sharing it, but I do have my doubts.

So…Team Batman or Team Superman?

  1. Team Batman, absolutely. Love her heart!
    I have a scrapbook page of Bubba, with all his dress-up days and Halloween costumes. It’s basically the full gamut of common little boy stuff — conductor, fireman, athlete, soldier — Top of page reads, “When I grow up, I wanna be…” and the bottom is a big picture of him as Batman. Because you know, always be Batman, whenever possible 😉 Turns out he does puter fings and enjoys Steampunk, but it’s been a fun ride 🙂

  2. Classic Batman she loves.. that’s awesome! She’s adorable! I love it when girls don’t love typical girly things. We haven’t seen Superman or Batman … umm, my kids or me (I know, I know)… but we are big on Yellow Submarine and the Beatles. They’re superheros, right? 😀

    1. Close enough 😉 It’s funny, because I had a little part where she intertwined the Batman theme song and Hey Jude, but deleted it. She started singing, “Hey Jude, don’t make it bad…” and at the “nah nah nah nah” part, she switched up to “na na na na Batman!”


  3. Well it is cool that you are not swaying her to more traditional annoying girl stuff. Bateman is so much better than Superman, and sure beats the heck out of Shopkins, which I don’t understand at all. How are small electrical appliances with little faces appealing? Who creates this stuff?

  4. Definitely Team Batman for me. A dark, tortured individual, living in the shadows… 🙂 Though I guess Adam West’s Batman was less “tortured” and more “kaaaa-pow!”.

    I won’t tell you the sort of programming which came to mind when I read “Doc McStuffins”.

  5. “Climbing into the window snatching people up” that is hilarious! My almost 3 year old daughter prefers batman. And ninja turtles. And wrestling… although she did pretend to be Harley Quinn while we watched Suicide Squad the other day. Not sure whether to be proud of that or not haha.

    But luckily she’s not in the phase of telling people that she’s someone else… Wait no she did tell a few people her name was Dory and she had memory loss. That was a fun day!
