Tots100 and Moneysupermarket.com have challenged bloggers' children to draw a picture of who their hero is and here is our blog post about who my kids have picked as their hero.
The dictionary definition of a hero is "a person, typically a man, who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities", well my boys have totally turned this definition on its head because not only have they picked a female as their hero, but a rather teeny tiny one at that. But based on the qualities that she brings out in them, I would say that the dictionary has got it all wrong and my kids have got it right. Surely a true hero is someone who brings out courage and noble qualities in us and inspires us to do our best and be all that we can be.
Introducing....Trinity...the 10 month old hero:

Daniel has written "Trinity is my hero because she is soooooo-ooooooooooo-oooooooooo-oooooooooo-ooooooooo-ooo cute and I love her soooo-ooooooo-ooooo much!"
And it is true - both boys do absolutely adore her. We named her Trinity because she was our third child and she represents completeness. Not only does she make our family complete but she just brings out the very best in both Joshua and Daniel.
Because of Joshua's difficulties and his brain being wired differently from other children, he can be prone to intense emotions and outbursts and yet one smile from Trinity can just melt away all that anger and proves beyond any doubt just how capable he is of showing love and care towards her.

They both love spending time with her. She entertains them, makes them laugh, gives them oodles of smiles and learns new tricks from them like clapping.
For someone so little and so young, she does an amazing job in her secret role of Superhero!
