As we walked out of Little M's classroom, he admonished his sister and I that, "Shhhh! We have to be quyyyyy-eeeettt!"
As we walked a little farther, he said, "Momma! I show you da rock o dama. I show you da rock!"
At the end of the hall, hanging for all to see, was a laminated news article about our new president with his picture on it.
LittleM: See Momma! Dat DaRock O Dama!I was so tickled with his pronunciation. But mostly, I was so proud of him for being excited to tell me about our new president.
Me: Yes! That's Barack Obama. Do you know who he is?
LittleM: Yes. He DaRock O Dama!
Me: Yes, he is Barack Obama. But do you know who Barack Obama is?
LittleM: She da Mr. President.
