A Boy for President

This morning as I sat reading my "commemorative issue" of TIME with Barack Obama gracing the cover, while my two-and-a-half year old, Brooklynn, sat next to me watching nursey rhymes. While reading that many parents told their children to "remember this day," as Barack Obama would be the first African American elected president, I realized that I hadn't yet taken the opportunity to tell Brooklynn about this man or how this happening would make history. After brief explanation that Obama would be the next President of "where we live," she repeated his name a few times until she had it almost perfect. Then, I reitified the fact that "this man will be our next president." She responded, "He's not a man, he's a boy."

That's hilarious! And I love the new blog background...way worth the change, eh? :)

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
