Who was the president before him?
"The one we talked about at school today, you know the one who looks like Barack Obama.
Yeah, and mom, what happened to John McCain?"

Until he's gonna get too big

Where does the president live?

"Goes to McDonalds and Taco Bell"

Would you like to be the president someday?
"No! When I grow up I am going to be a singing garbage man."
"Yeah, sure!"
"Hmm...that could be fun for a girl president..."

...and you thought you knew all about the presidency???

In case you didn't read it before, my thoughts on this CHANGE for our country are here.


  1. OMG Katie...I am laughing right out loud!!! Mock O Mama is my favorite!!
    That is a hoot!
    O and the singing garbage man?? That is great too.
    Oh and the one we talked about at school? That would be Martin Luther King!
    Too funny.

  2. Those responses are priceless! I'm with Patty on the Mock O Mama comment. It is the best!

    I also just checked out the Make & Takes and added the button to my blog. How fun! Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. A pink president that eats only Taco Bell and McDonalds...good idea! :) - Jodi ;)
