Wisdom Comes Suddenly

Kelly NOT For President

November 7th, 2012 · 10 Comments

Remember my post on how to un-do Picture Day jinxes?  HA!  It WORKED!  If you think this is great, wait until  you see Sara’s!  Not one, but TWO great sets of pictures, and here with me being all cheap-O and ordering Package A.  But I digress…

So there was some hub-bub on Tuesday, and I’m not just referring to the Fox News Headlines: “Which of Leonardo Di Caprio’s Exes is the Sexiest?”  What?  You missed that story?  It was B-I-G.  What were you busy following?  I can tell you what Kelly was following: the Presidential Election.  Not because she had a strong preference, or because we talked a lot about a candidate, but because for some reason she had it in her head she was on the ballot.

If I told her once, I told her 10x that there was NO WAY she was going to win the Presidency.  I wish you could have seen her relief this morning when she awoke with zero electoral votes.  We tried to convince her this country could not be led by a 5 year old, and perhaps she should learn to read first.  She thought it seemed like a lot of pressure and responsibility, and MAN OH MAN, what on earth would she do if she won?  The horror!

Her school pictures came home today, and I have to admit, with her insistence on wearing pearls, she does look rather Presidential.  But to reinforce my earlier assertions that she’s not ready for the White House, at bedtime, while writhing in her mass of blankets and pillows, she made up a beautiful song titled, “You Banged Your Leg Into The Toilet”.  I think the Country made the right decision in not electing Kelly, so there’s one thing the US can agree upon.  Let’s start from there, shall we?

    What a great picture! If I remember correctly, she looks like your grandmother. Can’t wait to see Sara’s.

    With a school picture like that, she’s building the type of impeccable reputation that might just lead her to be a candidate for office some day. Kelly 2052! I can see the posters now. Lots of glitter. Lots of fairy stickers. I’m sure at least ONE of her stuffed animals would make a great running mate.

    Amie, If she ran, not only would the V.P. be a stuffed animal, but her entire cabinet as well. No way could she pick just ONE.

    And of course Halloween would be outlawed.

    Debbie, Kelly is the spitting image of me (at that age), and of my Grandmother. It’s uncanny.

    She is adorable!!!
    She may look like you at the same age, but her smile is Greg’s though, I have to say!
    Miss you guys!!!

    What a terrific school photo! Such a dignified little lady! 🙂 Can’t wait to see Sara’s, too!

    Ana Paula,

    She does have Greg’s smile! I just now noticed that! Lucky girl. It was his smile and kind eyes that hooked me.

    So cute. I had a witty political comment but I won’t go there on this cute post. I will text it to you. Love the picture!
