Today is Inauguration Day, 2009. Maya told me she loves being African American because of the 'language we talk'. She was referring to the English language. Kids say the darndest things.
Then I started telling her about the White House, with the bowling alley and the movie theater. So a while later she said she'd like to be President, and I said she definitely could. I asked if she wanted to change any 'rules'?(her word for laws, she learned about Rosa Parks in school, and how she changed the 'rules') Then I asked her why. She said so she can live in the White House.
