My 14 yr old daughter found the newspapers-
That we bought for when the kids get older.

The day it was announced that Barack Obama was to be president...


I got goosebumps when I looked at them. Does anyone else still have this feeling of "Unreality" when thinking of what's happened?

Bless my babies- do you know what my 14 yr old said?

"I can't wait for the day when it's common for any human being to be any office...that's when I'll know we've made it."

:cry:

2. Thanks for responding-

I know it's not the normal drama laden post that gets a ton of bumps...

But I wanted to share. I'm so proud of my kids my heart breaks sometimes.

:hug:

3. I'll give you kick both for sharing
and a positive feel good post.

You've obviously raised a wonderful kid and it is :cry: inducing to hear such a profound and decent wish out of a teenager.

Thanks for posting.
