Out of the Mouths of Babes!

This afternoon the girls and I were out running some errands when they noticed all the political signs lining the yards as we drove past. I figured it was a great opportunity to educate them a little about the upcoming election. I began by explaining the reason behind the signs, who the names were on them, and when the election would be held. I then proceeded to tell them about Republicans and Democrats. As soon as I mentioned the name 'Democrats', in unison the girls began giggling and said, "Democrats! That's a stupid name." Girls, I couldn't agree with you more!

So great to teach your children young! We drove by a house the other day and in the corner of the far lawn for an "Obama" sign. Then in the corner of the lawn by the driveway was a "Dino Rossi" sign! Kevin and I just stared at each other. Not happy with the head of the country or the head of the state, so we will see what the other side can do.

Please Lord, just come back and end our stupidity!

PS. I think I had the beginnings of a drug deal in my class today!

It's a shame I live in a foreign land where there are no American political signs, commercials, debates…
I really feel out of the loop.

By the way, I want to hear about this likely drug deal the Juli speaks of.
