I don’t know about you, but we were shocked when Hillary Clinton did not win the presidential election this week. I am unashamedly a Hillary supporter, and as the mother of two girls, I was pretty excited about the message having a female president could send to my daughters. Right before the election, I told L (age 2.5), “We might have our first girl president!” she responded with, “Can I be president with her, Mommy?” What follows is an informal interview I did with her on her own campaign platform — the future of America?
Me: What would you do if you were President?
L: I would do some work like Hillary. I going to TALK! I would sing on the microwave phone. I would do some pink work. And some more pink work.
Me: When you’re President, you get to help make some new rules. What rules would you make?
L: Everyone has to vote. All the kids have to play! And the grown-ups have to play and go to church.
Me: What else?
L: Nothing! That’s enough!
Me: What would you eat for dinner if you were President?
L: Rice, and broccoli, and chicken!
L: [whispering] I want to be the donut President. Oh… my goodness!
I’d say that’s a pretty solid platform. I don’t know about you, but I’m with her!
Are you just as shocked/scared/confused/worried as I am? Check out my post on how to teach diversity and love for all fellow humans to our impressionable young children: What’s On Our Most Important Shelf — World Peace Shelf.

hahahahaha This is cute, you can be the donut president girl lol
this is so cute 🙂 I wish my daughter can talk now
I want her to be the donut president too.
I’m so disappointed in the result, and I’m a Republican. Long term, I think this will destroy the Republican party.
From a fellow “unashamed” Hillary supporter and Montessori-sh teacher – this was a real treat to read. Our kids are smarter than we are in many ways. Let’s stop uneducating them.
“Everyone has to vote.”
Yes!! Hillary would be proud!
If we don’t already need the donut president, I’ve got a feeling we’re going to need her real bad, real soon.
