Do superheroes cry?

I had to tell my son off this morning. He’d been a bit naughty. He’d been put on the naughty step and sat there in his Spiderman costume, crying his eyes out. He’d been a bit naughty sure, but certainly not enough to warrant the floods of tears that streamed down his face – I think he was just a bit tired still from a busy day yesterday.

We engaged in a conversation and so I asked him who he was. He replied with his name. I asked again, “who are you?” whilst pointing at his chest. “Sp-p-p-p-p-iderman?”, he replied. I asked him, “Do superheroes cry? Does Spiderman cry?” – ok so the Marvel aficionados might be able to quote a time when Peter Parker cried, but to a 4 year-old in a Spiderman costume – superheroes don’t cry. He sorted himself out pretty quickly and you’ll be pleased to read he was happily running around shooting webs in no time at all.
