Little man has got a very large frame on his wall. In it, smiles the President-elect, Barack Obama, on the day after he won the election, beaming beneath the towering victory headline in the Chicago Daily Herald. It was a gift from his Uncle, and it holds a prominent place on the bedroom wall.
Of course, we realize the importance of giving strong role models to our favorite boy -- role models beyond mom, dad, and his cool family members. Someone who looks, well, like him (though the little guy is the cutest thing around, so it's hard to find someone).
Anyway, since he can recognize images of Martin Luther King already, we thought we were headed in the right direction.
So now, when you ask him, "Who's on your wall?" he answers, "Barack Obama."
And when you say, "And what is he?" he says, "He's a soccer player."
And little guy still mixed up soccer and basketball, so you can see just how well our plan is working.
