History was made last night indeed - but the best thing is to see hope in people's eyes again...

Well done for making a wise choice between a single night's uninterrupted sleep and the opportunity to watch history in the making.

And, considering that I've heard adults referring to Iraq o'Bomber, I don't think your daughter's slip of the tongue is anything too serious - especially considering how often she no doubt hears the word Iraq.

One girl I know once asked her Mom about "all that fighting out in Iran and Ikea".

I suspect your daughter will remember this election for the rest of her life. She will remember that her parents thought that it was important enough to wake her to hear the victory/acceptance speech. She will grow up knowing that the election is a Very Important Event... and she will vote when she becomes eligible. Too many young people think that politics have nothing to do with them, with their daily lives - moments like the one you describe are the antidote to that lethargy.


Mi princesita!. She must have been very interested in this election cause I also remember trying hard to get her to wake up from her naps..lol!.. congratulations for this new leap in history, it is great that Alena was able to aknowledge this important event. xxxooo

Great story Will. Similarly let our (somewhat older, 11 and 9) kids stay up to watch concession/acceptance speeches. Great opportunity to teach about our country, values, and more. Reckon my kids will similarly remember the night.


Specialists tell that mortgage loans help a lot of people to live the way they want, just because they are able to feel free to buy needed things. Furthermore, banks offer financial loan for young and old people.
