Makes My Monday: Presidential Plans

Given the pre-Presidents' Day project catalyst "What would you do if you could meet the President?" or "What would you do if you were President?" these posters discovered in our twosome's elementary school hallways Make My Monday:

"If I could be President for one day...First kids could do what they want. Then kids could vote. Next grown ups in jail. Last free country for kids." -- Sarah Lage


"If I could spend a day with Barack Obama...First, I would introduce myself. Then, I would be in a parade. Next, I would go on a tour with Abe Lincoln. Last, I would invite Tomas [sic] Jefferson for pizza and movies!" -- Darren Lage

So what brightens your week's beginning? Share what Makes My Monday -- and be sure to visit other participants for plenty of pleasantness this Presidents' Day!

PS -- Know what else Makes My Monday? The chance I had to get to know Patricia Resnick, the amazing mama behind the new Olivia series (based on Ian Falconer's wonderful books) on Nick Jr. Go on over to Mommy Track'd and read more about her! (She also wrote an iconic film that is being translated to Broadway musical this spring...hmmm, wonder what it is....)

OH NO, SHE DI'INT!

What else Makes My Monday? The ever-lovely Laura of Catholic Teacher Musings gave me a li'l goodie to Make My Monday afternoon. Behold....


Really, is there anything quite like a thoughtful surprise to Make a Monday? Feel free to pick up the button if you are playing along; and by all means, if you haven't already, go get acquainted with Laura and her blog...treasures, both.

Your kids are much more thoughtful than mine...I think they would ask for non-stop Disney watching and all the snacks they could eat!

Sarah's mind is just so entertaining! And love Darren's way of thinking - time has no barriers. I could have placed a bet on him meeting Obama!

threeundertwo said...

LOL - why does Sarah think parents need to go to jail?

I'm with Darren. I would like to take Tomas Jefferson out for pizza and a movie and watch him say, "holy sh*t! Why didn't WE think of pizza and movies?"
