DoorsWideOpen

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.”

“Oh.”

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

“Mommy? Why is President Bush so mean?”

*PROUD SMILE*

    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*
