Peace, Hope, Obama

Day 20.

We went to library storytime today and it was all about the inauguration. What does that mean in toddler context? We read books about peace and hope, and one specifically about Obama. The librarian talked about him becoming our president, and it just felt really exciting.

I am grateful to be explaining democracy to my children.

It was just really fun to be talking about Obama all day to them. We watched part of the inauguration at the library (with a 15" rabbit-ears TV nonetheless), and it just felt electric, even in the children's department. I guess it is Hyde Park afterall, and that was Obama's hometown library.

I wish everyone a peaceful, hopeful day.
