Taylor Swift For President And Bearded Ladies

Sometimes I wish I had a hidden camera in my car to record all of the girls’ hilarious conversations about random and sundry things.

Case in point, my girls definitely have an opinion about what type of person should be running the country.

“The government takes way too much of our money…the government is really rich, right?” asked Miss A on the way home from dinner.

“Well…not really. Our government is in debt. That’s why it’s so important that we choose the right president in the election,” I started to explain, without getting too deep into politics with a first grader.

“Mom, you know what we need? We need a GIRL president,” announced Miss A.

“Yeah, but we don’t just want a president just because she’s a girl,” said Miss C.

Miss A: “She needs to be smart and nice….like TAYLOR SWIFT!”

At least they’re interested in politics and current affairs at a young age. We need a Taylor Swift for President bumper sticker.

Of course 5 minutes later, Miss A piped up from the back seat:

“You know what would be weird? If a lady grew up and had a beard!”

By the time we got home, not 5 minutes later, we were discussing the perils of hitchhiking.

Who needs The View when you have The Backseat?

Do you ever wish you recorded all the crazy, cool conversations you have with your kids? Wait, I guess that’s why I BLOG.

    Love it!
    Last night, I told my 3-year old she could be anything! (In an affirming, pursue your dreams kind of way.) She thought about it, and replied, “I’m going to be naughty!”

    Liz, don’t want to freak myself, I mean them, out any more than I have to. You know Middle School for Miss C is just SEVEN MONTHS AWAY OMG. I envision many uncomfortable conversations and interventions of said conversations. Sigh…then again facial hair is probably the LEAST of my worries!!!!
