Lily has become quite the Huckabee fan. We do not believe in political brainwashing (well, maybe a little), but she has heard us talking about him and has decided she is onboard for Huckabee in ’08. Today the hubby and I went to a rally and she begged to go with. She clapped and cheered and held her sign high. Her face lit up when he got up to play bass with the band (cause he is a rock star too).
I loved the conversation that took place on the way home. We were trying to explain the importance of voting and how a president is elected. Lily said that only boys could be president. I got on my soapbox and started to preach that girls can be anything they want even president (just not some girls/women-ahem). Lily said girls aren’t presidents, they are queens. And when she grows up, she wants to be queen of the city. And wear a crown. I agree, that beats president anyday.
I thought you would also enjoy a view of her nightstand which she insisted on decorating herself today. Oh, she makes her daddy proud. And I think it represents her two latest political ambitions perfectly.
