You may remember a few weeks ago when I shared Lily’s ambitions to become the first female president? Well they continue. So I thought I would let you in on our most recent conversation about her future plans.
She started talking again about how she wanted to be president and maybe the first female president ever. I told her that I hoped it wouldn’t be that long until we got a female president but that I thought she would be amazing at being our first one.
But then I launched into a speech about how difficult being president is:
“I mean are you sure you want to be president? It is a big responsibility and people are always saying bad things about you.”
She asked me why people would say bad things about you. I said when you are president people often disagree with you and say really bad things. I told her it doesn’t matter who the president is someone will always say bad things.
Without missing a beat she said,
“Well, except for Reagan. Cause he was the best president ever.”
Ahem. Apparently the presidential apple doesn’t fall far from her father’s apple tree.
