Stefanie's superpower:

When my daughter was two years old, she believed she could fly. Harmless you might think? I would lose sleep worrying if she, like Wendy would try to fly from our upstairs balcony. There is a fence up there, but her head could fit right through the bars and I was worried that the rest of her would follow suit. I only found out years later that "the boys", her brothers would shine a torch up the passage and tell her to chase the fairy...and she would set off with much glee. They only did it to get her out of their rooms, but it sure did serve to keep Peter Pan, Wendy and Tinkerbelle alive in her heart.
Sadly the only superpower I have is the ability to see what three children get up to behind my back, when the house is far too quiet, acute hearing and disecrnment help here too.
But I wish, how I wish that I too could fly...

I was standing in Paris, Euro-Disney looking up the side of one of their buildings. Having loved the story of Peter Pan,and esp the character of Tinkerbelle. I couldn't resist snapping them.
