Last night as we were in bed, Zoe came into our room & wanted to know if she could sleep with us. Given the circumstances of the last week (see previous two posts) Paul & I reluctantly said yes. With Zoe laying between us, I was reading & Paul was channel surfing.
All of the sudden I hear Zoe say, "That's Barack Obama" (as she sees the replaying of his pre-inaugural celebration yesterday). Paul replies by telling her that she's correct & that he is going to be the President come Tuesday.
She thinks about that a few minutes then says, "Yeah, & he's going to take all of our money & give it to people that don't work!"
Of course Paul replies that she's right (as I am giving him the evil eye!).
A few minutes later Zoe then says, "The government is also going to raise our taxes, right daddy?"
He replies (I'm still giving him the evil eye!) once again that she's right.
Zoe then just looks at me, smiles, & says, "We didn't want him to be President, Mama. He's going to start printing money & just give it away with nothing to back it."
Now, I am not into politics at ALL! But, as you can tell, my husband very much is. Can you guess what party he favors?!!!! (I think there's a little bit of brainwashing going on behind my back!!!!)
