Proud papa Robert Wilder has written a book called Daddy Needs A Drink (Delta), where he talks about the joys and struggles of fatherhood, including how he deals with his six- year-old sons love of superheroes.
Turns out, Wilders son loves superheroes so much that he dresses up in full hero costumes, including a green, muscular Incredible Hulk suit on a daily basis.
But Wilder doesnt mind his sons unique wardrobe choice in fact, he embraces it.
Says Wilder: Its how he feels comfortable, so I dont mind letting him express himself. If he wants to be the Hulk, thats fine by me.
But not everyone understands Wilders costume policy, especially when he takes his kids with him to art galleries and poetry readings.
He adds, When my kid walks into a poetry reading looking like a lumpy, green monster, most people think its cute, but some people just stare and dont understand.
