It makes a mother proud

(Not for front page....just sharing)

Most of you will never get a chance to meet my daughters simply because of time and distance. Fortunately, they are willing to campaign with me, having been raised politicking with and for my mother. Some in Charlotte met them this weekend and I hope they'll have time to do more.

After they helped at the event on Saturday, the Kissell campaign asked if they could do this. I think it's sweet.

I feel pretty good that as pre-teens they were willing to help even though Emily is painfully shy and would much rather have been hiding away with a book somewhere.

I remembered something else I've been meaning to tell you. Our dog has a toy that the girls have named "The Republican." It looks like a lambswool gingerbread man and it has a squeaker in it. Well, our dog loves to rip at the seams and she was able to pull it apart and started ripping the fluff out. It was this event that earned the little man the moniker. Do you want to know why? According to my two darling daughters.....It's named The Republican because it has fluff for brains and squeaks at the least little pressure.

Feel free to use this as an open thread

It doesn't have to be front page for folks to use it to gab about whatever is on their minds.....

I hope

I will get to meet your daughters. Maybe we will all be in DC on swearing in day. Does that sound like fun?

Lovex7

We aren't family, but we could stand out on the steps and cheer like crazy. :)

Extra Tickets

There are always a few extra tickets. Some members have been sworn in so often that nobody comes. They have extra tickets. The friends and family who are watching it on TV in a room where they are partying have much more fun. The chamber is sooo quiet and it takes sooo long. You don't have to be family. When this is over, Larry is going to feel like you are part of his family if he doesn't already.

Got my vote for front page.

Very sweet story. And goodness knows we could use one after listening to the Puppetshow all day.

Thanks for posting this!

If you follow the link

You'll see that Em looks like me and is tall with dark hair like her Dad.

As the parent of a little girl...

my first thought was "SHE'S GOING TO HAVE TWO TEENAGE DAUGHTERS DATING AT THE SAME TIME...AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!"

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.
-me

Hehehe

When Em was born just about the first thing John said was "two weddings".

They look like progressives to me!

What a sweet story. The Kissell camp...how nice! Larry Kissell is the kind of man we need in Washington, always grateful to those who give!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Isn't he wonderful?

Congressman Kissell has a nice ring to it.

Kids

sd you seem to bringing your kids up right. I have a brother who joined the dark side. We made him move to Cal. I hope they (your kids) have a front seat in Washington.

I have a brother who

joined the dark side too. But, he's really stupid, so that might explain it. ;)

Thats so great SD

Glad to see you are passing the values of citizenship to your children, in a time we need more parents to do so. That is adorable and amazing all at the same time.

Espicially The Republican doll. For them even to formulate that means you've definitly done a good job raising smart kids. Or your genes did ;) Both work.

Our children need to know that some people fought back, when others collaborated.

I'm actually quite pleased with Katie's political leanings. She sat and listened on Saturday to some of the candidates for County Commission and she asked me if Mrs. Roberts was a Democrat. I told her she was and Katie said she could tell because she made sense and talked about things that would help people and the other lady "just yelled like an idiot, 'I'm all about the family.'"
