It looks like Halloween came a little early this year!
When it was time for picture day, 3-year-old Kaylieann Steinbach’s parents let her pick out what she wanted to wear.
I don’t think they were expecting her to pick out this outfit, but they decided to go ahead and let her wear it anyway!
“Picture day was the same BUT Supergirl wasn’t a pick,” he said. “[S]he instead looked at what was offered and when I asked she proclaimed ‘POOTERGIRL’ and well, like I’ve said before, I couldn’t argue with that!”
Austin explained that “Pootergirl” is Kaylieann’s way of saying Supergirl. The toddler is 75 percent deaf and has trouble with “S” sounds. The family has been working together to improve Kaylieann’s sign language, and it has helped immensely.
“ASL has really brought out her personality in a whole new way and it has been such a life-changing experience to see her come into who she is,” Austin said.
Austin is obviously very proud of his strong and independent little girl, describing her as “unique, tenacious, bold, stubborn, brave, and every other word there is to describe joy, intelligence, and grace.”
Thankfully, Kaylieann’s school is very supportive of letting kids be kids and they loved the toddler’s choice for picture day. In fact, Austin said they’ve come to expect her unique outfits, and some of the other kids have even joined it!
Some parents might be appalled at the thought of their daughter wearing a Supergirl costume for a picture that will be put in yearbooks and hung on walls, but we love that Kaylieann’s parents let their daughter shine in the outfit she loves most!
She may be dressing up like her favorite comic book heroes, but we think Kaylieann is the true superhero!
Did you love the outfit Kaylieann chose for her school photo as much as we did? So share this!
