K and i were riding in the car and listening to NPR.
i was absorbed in the political talk, as i have been for the past few weeks and K was quiet, listening, looking out the window, picking his toe jam, etc.
talk on the radio turned to barack obama, a name with which my son is quite familiar.
K: "hey! mommy! they talking bout barack obama!"
my heart swelled with pride at the sound of my sweet boy so adept at pronouncing the name.
me:"that's right, K!"
K: "i wike him." (nodding) "i wike barack obama. he's good."
i had to agree.
he was quiet again for a few more moments as we both listened to the broadcast.
K: "but i going to ask for mike huckabee."
what?! ( i assumed he meant "vote for" him.) where was this from?
me: "mike huckabee?"
K: " yep. i wike mike huckabee. he's nice."
me (curious): "what do you like about him, K?"
K: " i wike him becuz when he come to my house he will say, 'hey! K! you want to pway wif me?' wike dat. and i will say, 'okay!'"
what can you say to that logic?
but that still doesn't explain how he learned about mike huckabee in the first place.
perhaps grandma has been talking a bit of politics with the grandchildren these days?
