Wow, how perceptive she is
We spent the day at my mom's house yesterday, because the Buckeyes were on (go Bucks!). Later on in the day, Libby was standing by the coffee table and looking at a mail flyer, and held it up to my mom and said, "Mamaw, this is John McCain." She had to repeat herself once so we could make sure that was what she said, and sure enough it was. She was holding a flyer of John McCain. We have never ever told her anything about him for her to know that (nor Barack Obama, for that matter). After we took the look of astonishment off our faces, I said, "Libby where did you see him?" She held up the flyer and said, "He's right here!" (duh, Mama) and I said, "Did you see him on TV?" and she said, "Yeah, he said 'I'm John McCain, and I apooped.'" (refering to, "I'm John McCain and I approve of this message"). We rolled into unbelieving laughter. I mean, she's not even 2 1/2! I don't have the TV on during the day, but Scott puts it on in the mornings while he and Libby wait for me and Hudson to get up. I still can't believe how amazingly perceptive she is. Unbelievable. So, pay attention to what your kiddos are paying attention to!
