The kids have been very curious about all of the political signs in yards while we are out and about lately. So, we’ve had a couple of good discussions about why they are there and who those people are. Apparently, Toby is starting to understand what it means to be voted into office:
Toby: Mom, I had a dream last night that I was voted to be Barack Obama.
Me: So you were the President?
Toby: Yeah, everybody voted for me to be the President.
Me: That’s neat, maybe that could really happen someday. What do you think you’ll be when you are a grown up?
Toby: Oh, I don’t know Mom. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what God has planned for me.
Me: I think that sounds like a wonderful idea.
