Priorities

We went into Mr. D's room together first thing this morning to share with him the news of Barack Obama's President-Elect status. He seemed pleased, although also concerned about the feelings of his good friend B at school, who was a committed McCain supporter.

At breakfast, Mr. D thoughtfully shared: "I would like, not to be President, but to be a part of that family."

"Really," we said. "Can you tell us a little more about that?"

"Well," he continued, eating his breakfast with a sly grin, "if I was in that family, I would live in the White House, and I would just keep calling down to ask them to bring up more doughnuts."

Okay then. Good to know.

They are cute little political urchins aren't they? E tried to stay up to watch the results but passed out around 7:30 and was all worried that it looked like McCain was winning!

Oh ho ho, it's not so much the doughnuts as it's the puppy Barack promised the girls! ;-)

Maybe it's just me.
