Got her first cast superhero painted.

Incredibly long story short, my daughter Mia broke her arm yesterday and has a cast from her shoulder to her fingers. after it was done she asked if I would paint it for her. Her case worker kept asking if she wanted a princess or something and Mia just kept looking at her and tilting her head like "what are you talking about"? until she eventually said "No, one of the avengers"

So she now has a Captain America cast.
