Overheard . . .

MH: Daddy, can I watch Jack-Show (Jack's Big Music Show)?
DH: (while we watch inauguration snippets on the news) Sweetie, we're watching the making of history right now . . .
MH: I don't like history! I want Jack-Show!

Earlier today, we were discussing how exciting today was, as our new President was being sworn in. We talked about what special day it was and how lucky we are to be Americans, and she even asked me a few questions.

One of the things I told her is that our new President, Barack Obama is now living in the White House in Washington DC.

She paused for a moment before asking "Which white house is it?"

A conversation of what the White House is ensued. She asked if it's the house Audrey used to live in (I have no idea who Audrey is, other than the little girl who lives across the street from us - her house is not white).

She then said "Is that president 'Bama a girl?"

She then proceeded to ask why the house was white and not another color.

Discussing politics with an almost 4-year old is quite entertaining, no?

Oh yes, talking to a 4 or almost 3 year old is always exciting...the things that come from the mouth of a child is always the best...or sometimes in my case @#%%#$! haha!

I've been teaching B how to say his name today and he keeps coming up with all these variations on it just to be silly!

I agree with MH, why is it White anyway? ; )
