Our nation voted the next President to run the country and my 23 month old saw Veggie Tales Live.
One should note that when I was eight months pregnant with B, Jeremy and I went and saw Sufjan Stevens live. This time it was Veggie Tales. Oh, how life has changed!!
Veggie Tales was a really awesome and fun. I grew up watching it and love that B enjoys it almost as much as me. B did great considering it was late, there was the temptation of merchandise, he had been sick, and he had to sit still for a long time. He only needed one additional intermission. :-) He did really enjoy the songs and at the end decided to dance in the aisles.
I feel so blessed that Jeremy and I can take him to little things like this for him to enjoy.
After Veggie Tales, Jeremy left B and I to go to his weekly bible study. I put B to bed, but about two hours later he woke up crying and coughing really bad. I quickly ran up and got him and brought him to my bed thankful to get some additional snuggles in while watching the election results.
Little did I know how much B would like the election results as well! The reporter would say something about some state and B would look at me nodding his head as if to agree with him or her and then add in his own comments. It was hilarious. So I decided to get his opinion.
Me: "Bradley, today we voted for our future President and we are watching to see who won. The two running are Obama and Romney. Who do you think will win?"
B: "Obama. Yeah. Obama."
Me: "You really think so? Your daddy and I were hoping Romney would win."
B: "Yeah. Dada. Mama. Nee. Yeah. Me. Nee. Yeah. No. Obama." (Obama was said with a nod.)
Me: "I think you might be right. It isn't looking good for Romney."
B: "Not good Nee."
Then, he continued with his nodding and adding his own comments to the reporter's. It definitely made watching the results much more enjoyable. I just wish I could have understood his additional comments!
