Happy Day

I told Finn this morning, "You know, this is a really exciting day. Barack Obama is our new president."

He totally flipped out, excited. And I was thinking, "Wow! Even preschoolers can get into the spirit!"

And then he said, "Barack Obama is bringing me new presents? Like Santa? Will he wrap them?"

But I guess he wasn't so far off, as I felt like today was Christmas for those of us who haven't felt patriotic for a good eight years. I'm so happy that my boys will grow up in a world where there's evidence of people are starting to be judged not by the color of their skin, but the content of their character. Here's to a more peaceful country.
