As I was rushing the kids through getting ready this morning, I momentarily forgot how momentous this day was slated to be. And then, as I got into the car, and turned on NPR, I remembered.
Along with remembering that I had forgotten to record the inauguration.
I looked in the rear view mirror at the kids who were settling into their seats, grumbling about how it was not quite daytime yet, and asked: “Who’s going to be our new President today?”
Both kids, immediately: “Barack OBAMA!”
What a day.
