Cory in the House

This afternoon over lunch my 7 year old daughter was reviewing the presidents that are on her placemat with her 3 year old brother. She is a born teacher to be sure.

Daughter, "This is Abe Lincoln and he was shot. George Washington was our first president. Here is our president now, George W. Bush and here is his dad, George Bush."

Son, "Where is Cory?"

Daughter, " I hate to tell you this, but Cory really does not live in the White House."

Son, "Mom!"

I had to break the news that Cory does not, in fact, live in the House. This was a true "mother of the year" moment when I faced that my son's reality of the presidency is based on a popular Disney channel television show. Note to self: less Disney Channel, more C-SPAN for my 3 year old. *revised

Thank you so much for linking me to the article at FlowerDust....how incredible to read! I sent the link to Bethy, in hopes that she might find some way to forgive Jon. He so wants to save their marriage. This article was so uplifting to read!

Thanks for adding my link to your blogroll too!

Ha, ha. My three year old watches way too much TV too. It's really hard in the winter...I run out of ideas and honestly just need some time to myself :). We're PBS fans...Word Girl has him close to reading...guess it's not all bad, right?

Oh my, we are no where close to reading. I guess he is just learning at such a different and slower pace than his big sis.

He loves SuperWhy! That does help him identify some letters.
