Thump, thump, thump. Creak. Sniffle. Cry. “Mama?” “MAMAAA??????” “MAMA!”

Ergh. “Yes?”

“Sometimes you don’t understand me.”

Ergh. “I don’t?”

“No. Sometimes you don’t understand.”

Shuffle, shuffle, robe. Door open. Peer down at small serious face. “I’m sorry I don’t always understand you honey. Sometimes I don’t understand myself.”


Hands, walk, walk, tuck in, kiss, hug.

“Mommy? Why is President Bush so mean?”

    I LOVE her! She and R. must get together — I was getting a speech from R. in the car the other day about how she doesn’t like Bush because he lies! 😉

    Look at that! As smart and witty as mom! Funny how they can knock you down and pick you up within the span of one stumped pause from a ignorant world leader…

    I was concerned about inflicting my own politics on Miles and Porter… That faded as soon as my wife found a cool “President Poopyhead” T-shirt for sale…

    And maybe that little intelligent angel could teach quite a few adults something about deductive reasoning. Shall we get busy on a book tour?

    Goodness me, you have a deep thinker there. And someone with very sound political instincts!

    Well, someone has a good political head on her small little shoulders!

    Once when my daughter was about 4 she told me that if she had a bakery, George Bush wouldn’t be allowed in it.

    *beaming with pride*
