Just like Barack Obama

This has been an extremely hard first trimester for me. I am learning to trust in God like never before and being challenged daily to lean on the Lord for strength. One morning at the breakfast table, I leaned my head down on my arm as Kalena and I sat talking and eating our cereal. She sweetly exclaimed "Oh Mommy, are you tired?" "yea, mommy is tired" I said, then she asked, "Mommy, why are you tired?" and I answered "Because mommy is pregnant" I said, knowing she has only heard that word several times. "Oh" she exclaimed knowingly "just like Barack Obama" she said with confidence, going back to another bite of cereal. In my sleepiness I sat up and looked at her. What did she mean by this... it had to make sense in some way to her little brain because she was so sure of her statement. Then it hit me. Barack Obama is president, and mommy is Pregnant. Words anyone could confuse :) I giggled at the connection she had made and explained to her the meaning of the two words, and that Barack Obama is not pregnant. :)
