President's Day

I told Violet it was President's Weekend. She was surprised, "What the?" (That's how my children talk. I don't know where the hell they get it.) I understood her confusion. It was not only Valentine's Day at School on Thursday . . . it was Valentine's Day at Home on Sunday . . . two days off from school . . . Chinese New Year . . . and now what's this business about presidents? Weirdest weekend ever.

How would you explain President's Day to a three-year-old?

We're celebrating

these guys. They all got a turn to be the boss of the country.

Sure, a girl could be President. She was kind of close.

This is our president now.

Everyone was excited about Obama becoming president.

Maybe not EVERYONE.

Bush was the president before Obama.

He did things a lot of people didn't like.

So did Clinton. He was the president before Bush and after Bush . . . he was surrounded by them. He tried to help his wife become president.

He tries to help LOTS of people.

The president has the toughest job in the country.

And it's probably never been tougher than right now.

We hope things get better.

But no matter what, it will be someone else's turn soon enough.
