Toddlers on Politics

Last week, I was reading the newspaper in the car while waiting to drop my 2-yo son off at daycare.

"You reading a book, Mama?"

"No, honey, this is a newspaper."

"Who's that on it?" My son points to a picture on the front.

I recognize an opportunity to educate. "This is the president. He runs the country. His name is Barack Obama."

"Barack O-Mama."

I laughed so hard I cried. Then I called my husband, who cracked up. No matter how hard I try, I can't convince my son that the president's name is not O-Mama. Maybe I should write the president and advise him that for the next four years, his name will be different than what he thinks it is. :)
