Little girl wears THIS for her pre-school photo - and it's AMAZING!

This is adorable.

October 23 2018

It's never easy to decide what your kids should wear for their pre-school photograph.

After all, it's a photo you're going to be staring at for years to come - and who wants their child to be wearing something REALLY embarrassing?

But when dad, Austin Steinbach, was charged with getting his three-year-old daughter, Kaylieann Steinbach, ready for her daycare picture, he decided to let her decide what she wanted to wear. 

Kaylieann has always loved Superman, who she calls “Pooterman” or “Pootergirl” because she has profound hearing loss in both ears and cannot hear “s”s. But that doesn’t stop her from loving a giant S on her outfit.

'On picture day at school she was given the choice of outfits, none of which were Supergirl. She walked up, looked over each of her choices, turned and said ‘POOTERGIRL!’ and well … I couldn’t argue with that answer,' Austin said.

The adorable photo of Kaylieann proudly wearing her Supergirl outfit (and holding a Superman toy) beaming ear to ear in her official school photo appeared on Reddit and especially when readers heard the story behind it. 

'She’s 75 percent deaf [in] both ears. Both her mom and I are hearing though,' Austin wrote on Reddit. 'We just got the news from her audiologist five months ago and are learning ASL (sign language) now and love it. She’s learning so much faster than us though! I love how much her learning sign has opened up her expressiveness and vocabulary. It’s so heartwarming to see her grow and become herself. We’ve started attending deaf groups and get-togethers once a month and it’s helping her confidence [in] signing tenfold.'

Austin hopes Kaylieann will look back on this photograph and love it forever. 'Supergirl and Spider-Man have always been her favourite,'he said. 'She’s torn between Hulk, Spider-Man, and Supergirl most days.'

We are sure she will!
