My daughter wants to be a Ninja!

(I tried to avoid doing cross-post, but I think this is too cute to not share and it gives me an excuse to put Ninja legitimately in a post title!) My seven year old daughter Alice announced she wants to be a ninja when she grows up. She’s already formed a secret ninja club (girls only) in […]

But she’s always had a thing about cars and trains (her oldest cousin was also big into them) and also dinosaurs, which is just as cool. The Bat Girl thing, I think […]
