Protocol and Produce

After school yesterday...

Sarah: "Ms. S (the art teacher) said I shouldn't say 'Barack Obama' anymore; I should say 'President Obama'."

Mommy: "Well, if you were speaking to him, you'd absolutely call him 'President Obama' -- or 'Sir' -- to his face, but around the house, I think it's okay to call him Barack Obama."

Darren: "If he was a Veggie Tales character, you could call him 'Broccoli Obama.'"

I love it! Always thinking outside of the box. :-)

We were having a discussion on the president's name, too. I think through the campaign everyone got used to calling him by his first, or first and last, name. Now it does feel like we should work on something a bit more respectful, but hard to break familiar habits.

I LOVE Veggie Tales! I by no means allow the TV to be a babysitter (they wouldn't let me anyway) but for the 20 minutes or so a day that I DO allow them to watch TV, it's either Veggie Tales or Baby Einstein.

If my hubby hears the "Barbara Manatee" song one more time, I think he may just kill me. LOL Rowan, on the other hand, LOVES it.

Brocoli Obama...I love it!

You know, maybe if Pres. Obama was a Veggie Tale, he wouldn't have passed that abortion bill....
