Dinner on the 4th of July was quite spectacular at our house: chocolate chip pancakes. Nothing like celebrating the freedom to eat total junk for dinner.
Our dinner conversation was amusing. Being the 4th, I thought I'd ask the kids about politics - you know, every 12yo, 6yo, 2yo and 9mo is totally engrossed in today's political scene... right? Here's how the conversation went:
Me: So, Beloved 6yo of Mine, are you a Democrat or a Republican?
6yo: Um... a... Publican.
Me: Yes! (hands shoot up in the air in a victory stance) THAT's m'boy!
Me: Ahem. So, WHY are you a Republican?
6yo: (without skipping a beat, mind you) Because it sounds American.
Ya gotta love it. :)
