If four year olds could vote …

This past Saturday, I took the kids to Starbuck’s while Bob was at a men’s conference.  While sitting in the “comfy chairs” sipping our organic milks and americanos [guess who had which one!], Darcy suddenly turned to me and asked: “Hey Mom, do you think Barack Obama likes to read magazines?”

When I was a kid, we wrote to the president all the time.  I still have their letters and pictures somewhere — Reagan, Bush, Clinton — I think it may be time for Darcy’s first letter.   And I’m rather glad she has a few more years ’til she can vote!

    That’s so fun! I remember writing to Chelsea Clinton with some friends of mine and “she” wrote us back on official presidential letterhead. I had forgotten about that until now. I’ll have to ncorporate that with my munchkins soon enough. Thanks for the reminder! :)

    Oh! That’s a good idea! I didn’t even think about the first daughters!
