Mr. President

I kept both babies home from school so that we could watch history together. Hope knows who Barack Obama is. When you ask her she says "He is our new president and he is a good man." She does still call him "Barack-O" which I love. I sat her in my lap and told her that I wanted her to remember this day. The day that Obama promised her and her brother a brighter future. I am so proud of our new president and all the hope that he brings to our world, our country, our children.

Yep, Noah drank to Kool-Aid too, my friends. Want some?
Noah, I know you won't remember this day, but you were there the day history was made. Good, amazing, history.
