Sorry, I couldn't resist the cheesy rhyming title. It speaks the truth. My mother is a huge Obama supporter. Some may say she is a bit obsessed with this presidential election. Okay, so I say she is a bit obsessed, but after reading this I challenge you to disagree. We will complete our move to Vermont on Monday. Since I like to procrastinate about things of immediate importance and obsess over things that can wait awhile, I have decided thatThe Diva's third birthday party should be a luau. It will be January, and hideously cold, so what better way to celebrate? The Diva's third birthday will also fall on the day that our new president is sworn into office. What you are about to read is a conversation with my crazy (and I mean that in the nicest way) mother. I love my mother, and things like this are what make her so dear to my heart.
Me: So Mom, I was thinking about having a luau for Diva's third birthday. Wouldn't that be funny?
Mom: Oh sure, that's a good idea, but what about having an Obama themed party, if he is elected president?
Me: Mom, you have got to be kidding me, it's a toddler birthday party!!!
Mom: Well, Barack Obama lived in Hawaii, so you could still have a luau.
I brought the topic back up to my mom the other day and she had forgotten all about her brilliant idea. I had to remind her of her insanity.
