Some parents can get very uptight when it’s school picture day. They know this is the photo which will be hung on the wall of the best room in the house, so they make sure that their kid is looking spot on. So what if their kid tells them she wants to wear a Supergirl outfit?
Austin Steinbach, three-year-old Kaylieann’s father, spoke about his little girl. He explained how they always give their daughter three outfit options for her to choose from. The Supergirl outfit wasn’t an offer that day….
“Picture day was the same BUT Supergirl wasn’t a pick,” Steinbach 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!”
The family explained how they are working hard to help Kaylieann. They’re doing so through sign language. “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,” Steinbach explained.
Steinbach spoke about how proud he is of his daughter. The way he describes her is incredible. He says how she is “unique, tenacious, bold, stubborn, brave, and every other word there is to describe joy, intelligence, and grace.”
She loves them so much, sometimes they have to hide the costumes just so they can wash them. “This specific [Spiderman] costume she got for our trip to San Francisco Comic-Con and she wore almost two weeks straight up until Comic-Con, which after we had the fight the century to get it off!” Steinbach admitted.
Luckily, the staff at Kaylieann’s school are very supportive of her outfit choices. The kids and the teachers are always excited to see what the little girl has chosen to wear. Kaylieann is even getting other kids to join in on the fun.
“Everyone is always excited to see what she picks out to wear every day,” Steinbach explained. They must have screeched then, to see the little girl come in for school photo day with a full on Supergirl outfit. Pretty sure nobody copied her outfit!
“I honestly don’t know if her classmates want to wear superhero gear more or less because of her, but it’s always fun and heartwarming when I drop her off or pick her up because her classmates are always talking about her being Supergirl, or whomever she’s wearing that day.”
This girl is definitely a trendsetter. The best part is, she’s not even trying too hard.
