Daughter’s “Pootergirl” Costume for Picture Day Goes Viral After She Rejects Dad’s Outfit Choices

We do our best to raise our children in the ways they should go, while also trying to foster their independent spirit. It’s a parental dichotomy that doesn’t always manifest in the ways we anticipate—and no dad could be more aware of that than Austin Steinbach.

She just LOVES Superman and Supergirl (whom she adorably refers to as “Pooterman” and “Pootergirl” because she can’t hear her S‘s due to major hearing loss).
