MAMA LIKES

New Vocabulary
posted by Amy

Looking at our posting over the past month, it may seem like we're about to change the name of this site to Obamazine. We're not, we promise.

But I have been trying out some new vocabulary with my kids.

Examples? "President-elect Obama says it's time to get up for school." When my prodding is greeted with groans and covers pulled over heads? "President-elect Obama says, "Yes we can!"

President-elect Obama, mamas all over the world thank you for giving us new ways to get kids to do what they need to do. I've already used this one: "When President-elect Obama was a little boy living in Indonesia, he used to get up before 5 a.m. to study U.S. history. So I don't want to hear any complaints about having to do one page of math homework!"

It may be a new day, but a mama still has to nag. After all, where would we be if the original Obama Mama hadn't?
