No Wonder

I’ve been so busy with the launch of my book and planning Wonder Boy’s 10th birthday party, that I just realized I never posted about Wonder Woman. No worries though. It’s not like the internet needs another review of the movie. You all know it’s fantastic already. So this post is really not *about* Wonder …

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Updated 4/1/16 (see below). Yesterday was the day I’d been waiting for with mixed emotions: the premiere of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The 11yo (Boy Genius) instigated this …

I Need a Super Man

Okay, “need” might be a strong word. And I’m sure if I tweeted about this, someone would surely throw up the “firstworldproblems” hashtag. But in the grand scheme of what makes me smile, I need Superman to be a super man. Words cannot express (which pains me to even say) how excited I am for …
