Schoolhouse Rock

C likes to ease into the school day, so on the way downtown in the mornings he usually has some questions prepared. He also has questions prepared for after school, at dinner, while I'm watching TV or reading, during bathtime and as he's drifting off to sleep, but that's beside the point now.

This morning he asked if there was a president named John Kennedy. I told him there was. "The only presidents I know are Calvin Coolidge, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and George Bush," he said.

that is quite a mix of presidents, i guess it is easy to see what part of history they are learning in school

The fact that my child named Bush and not Bill Clinton tells me that I have been remiss in my political instruction. At least he knew JFK, I guess.I'm going to have to do something about this.
