This morning the little guy and I helped set up for the Save Texas Schools rally at the State Capitol. I admit it, I tricked him into it...I wanted to expose him (again) to being a part of activism, particularly with something that he directly benefits from. Ya, I'm a mom with an agenda. After happily (yes, he was happy!) schlepping many chairs, tables, and bottles of water we headed to the car so we could get to a birthday party (that was my bribe carrot..first help, then party). We passed a group of people as we exited the grounds.
Little guy: "Mom, that big guy was really looking at you."
Me: "Like I'm cute or like he wanted to kill me?"
Little guy: "Well, I can't see why anyone would want to kill you."
Yup, I'm gonna take that as a total compliment, yes indeedy I am.
