Mario doesn't need to wear a mask to be my hero, but he does has a lot of swag in his t-shirt with "HERO" graphic and cool mini masks print on back and sleeves. I admire Mario for being brave and courageous in everything he does - even when he says "I can't do it mama!" he tries and tries and tries again. Mario is the filling in our Hero Sandwich - he is all the good stuff that makes life so yummy. I am proud, happy and honored to be Mario's mama. For these reasons and countless others (I am his mama after all) Mario is my Hero!
