Favorite Presidents

Jonah:  (as he got into the car at school today) Did you know that Monday is President's Day?  I'm so excited! 

Me:  Yes, I did know that.  Did you talk a lot about presidents today?

Jonah:  Yes, and I loved it.  My favorite presidents are Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.  You won't believe all the things the did.

Me:  I thought Barack Obama was your favorite president. 

Jonah:  No, he is our current president but my favorites are Lincoln and Washington.  Do you have a favorite president?

Me:  Hmmm...maybe Reagan. 

Jonah:  WHO?  I don't know who that is. 

Me:  He was president when I was a little girl.

Jonah:  Did he free slaves?

Me:  No.

Jonah:  Was he a soldier?

Me:  I'm not sure.

Jonah:  Did he lead our country through a war?

Me:  I don't think so.

Jonah:  Did he dance with Betsy Ross?

Me:  I don't know.

Jonah:  You need to pick a better president.  Yours didn't do very much.

Things you don't know

Jonah:  What was that sound?

Me:  My computer.

Jonah:  I didn't know your computer made sounds like that.

Me:  Jonah, there are so many things that you don't know.

Jonah:  Like how horses get their horseshoes?  I don't know that.  But, I wish I did.

He doesn't eat much but he sure does love pizza...

Micah: I had fun.
Me: You had fun at church?
Micah: Yes, I had fun.
Me: Do you love church? Do you love your friends there?
Micah: Yes. I had fun.
Me: Did Joan help you eat your yogurt?
Micah: Yes, Joan help me. I love Joan.
Me: You love Joan?
Micah: ummmm....Pizza. I love pizza. But, Joan help me!

Sorry, Ms. Joan. He DOES love you but I"m afraid pizza edges most anyone out.
