Gushing over the sweet couple, a confidante revealed:
Aww, Suri Cruise is slowly descending from her lofty Scientology space-cloud to join us regular humans here on Earth!
Katie Holmes took the expressive tyke on her FIRST EVER NYC taxi-cab ride Wednesday, sans bodyguards! The darling pair then attempted to beat the steamy Big Apple heat by enjoying some frosty, ice-cream delights.
And this all just days after Momma Kate introduced Suri to the world of commercial flying…
We're SO happy Katie is trying to instill some sense of perspective into her pampered daughter (we're pointing the finger at YOU, Tom Cruise!). If there were a best mother-of-the-year award, Katie would be ALL OVER that sh*t!
And for Suri's next big adventure?
Why, she's gonna go underground subway-style and ride the 6 Train deep into the Bronx, DUH!!
Katie! Take video of that, please!
