Dad for President
I’m a mom of two daughters and feel a great weight on my shoulders to teach them to always stand up for themselves. Our children are loved, so loved and everyday they wake up and go to bed knowing they are loved. They are safe and secure and happy. Their physical and emotional needs are taken care of and I know they are empowered to truly believe they can be anything they want when they grow up. That confidence, that unmatched joy, that enthusiasm for everyday is the magical world my daughters know in our home. And because of that I won’t tell my daughters the real reasons why I didn’t feel good about either candidate before voting for the President of the United States. Our first female President should be celebrated as should an entrepreneur with dreams of becoming leader to our country. My daughters should be learning about the electoral process and the great faith we put in Americans to make good decisions for us, not about corruption and deceit. It’s still as true today as it was the day we played at the park before the presidential election. When you’re little, Dad for President is the best idea ever. But even when you’re grown up, sometimes Dad for President doesn’t sound too bad either.
The only thing that could make this Children’s Place “Dad for President” shirt cuter is if it declared a vote for mom instead.
I hope your day included a visit to your local voting poll and a few minutes at the playground to remind yourself of the great place we live, where anyone can be anything they want to be.
What was the best part of your day today?
