That's My Girl

When I was a child, I was a news junkie. I always watched the nightly news, both local and national. In junior high, I read Newsweek cover to cover every week. According to my parents, I could give my opinion on the energy crisis of the time before I was in elementary school.

I am not as much of a junkie now, but I do still like to keep up with the news. I read the Economist most weeks, although I don't make it cover to cover. And my car radio is almost always tuned to NPR.

So I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when Pumpkin saw a magazine on the floor, pointed to it and said "mama". At first I thought she meant it was my magazine, but she calls me "mommy", not "mama". Then I looked at the cover. It was a picture of Obama.


Those who are interested in Pumpkin's reading habits (hi, Mom!) will have noticed that I updated the "What Pumpkin's Reading" sidebar. I also updated my running Pumpkin's Book List post.

    That's pretty impressive. My daughter calls every black woman Mrs. Murray after the teacher on "Little Bill."


Sorry for the CAPTCHA, folks. The spammers were stealing too much of my time.
