This week, the future president and vice president of the United States (Sisters can be President and VP together, right? Schmidt 2048!) met the next first lady of the United States! Mrs. Obama asked Allison if she was ticklish. This was after a wonderful rally in Madison, I feel really lucky to have been there! Lizzie was asleep, but I hope the encounter made an impression on some level! And yes, Michelle Obama is REALLY tall!
This afternoon Allison was playing with some toys and started chanting, "Yes We Can! Yes We Can!" and I was so excited- I thought, "Hey, that rally really stuck with her!" I asked her what she was doing and she said she was playing Bob the Builder. Score another one for PBS Kids.
