Did you cry? I kept having to reassure SG that Mommy was crying because she was so, so happy. Happy Inauguration Day!

Yeah!

It was a great moment - but I couldn't get a nagging question out of my mind - what on earth was that THING doing on Aretha Franklin's head?

Shallow to the core...

Truly an awesome event. The wait was excruciating!

Cried and cried. Best day ever.

Excellent speech. Long live hope!

Now let's see some progress!

When my 6-year old saw that he said, "Whoa. Now that's a bow. Is that supposed to be hat? What is that, Mom?"

If he can see the fashion faux pas why couldn't she?

And, yes, shallow to the core but, damn, that's a hat I'll never forget!

okay.. I think you'll appreciate this.
Jake ( he's 13 now) was watching Letterman's "top 10 things we'll miss about Bush" segement and cracking up and he looks at me all sober faced and says, "It's a lot funnier now that it doesn't make me sick to my stomach."

I cried the whoile day and for the next two days whenever I saw the pictures!
