Presidential Hopeful

When I read that this week’s theme for I Heart was by the book, I was torn between two different photos.

I love this one, though.  While no one would believe it, the props in the picture were not my choice.  When given a chance to pick what he wanted to have, my son got the library books he had just taken out.  You see, he wants to be president someday.  He can tell you just about any fact you may want to know about past presidents (because of him, I know that John Tyler was playing marbles with his kids when he found out he had become President) and he can name every state on the map and its relation to another without even looking at a map.  This is probably because he studies the US map he asked for as a birthday present when he goes to sleep.  Yes, I’m bragging, but I’ve got a reason to.  I’m darn proud of this boy.  And he would make a great president someday.  Plus, he’s got big plans to abolish vegetables in the White House.  That’s a campaign promise I can go for.

This photo was entered into the I Heart Faces photo challenge –
