Those were the words uttered by my nearly 9 year old last night as we watched the news clip of Obama telling parents to turn off the TV and video games and read to their children. “Barack Obama is against video games, which means he’s against everything I stand for! I can’t vote for him now.”
Iain seemed genuinely distressed that his hero, his first candidate for president, had a vendetta against two of his favorite pastimes. However, once I explained to Iain that all Obama was trying to say was that it is important for parents to take an interest in their children, and take an interest in helping them grow as many skills as possible he calmed down. Once he knew that Obama was not going to take office and outlaw video games for kids, he was back on Obama’s team again. 🙂 Sean and I were both tickled and intrigued by his interest and perspective.
In other news, on Saturday my sister and I took our kids over to our parents house so we could give my father his father’s day present. While we were there, I snapped these pictures of my niece enjoying a popsicle.
Sunday, Sean, the boys, and I all went to see Kung Fu Panda which, if you haven’t seen it yet, please do so ASAP. It is a very good movie!!
Today, the boys and I are expecting to begin a new “thing” where we spend time together, writing stories, playing games. Doing things specifically together instead of just existing in the same house. I’m really looking forward to that.
On the photography front, I have a test website up at www.eviecurleyphotography.com. Check it out when you get a chance. Any feedback is appreciated!
