Forgot to Mention!

Last Friday, after a long week of heavy campaigning…my son won the coveted student body president election!

It was a close race to a worthy opponent.

Such a relief to have it over! When Tad came home from school, we had the song “Hail to the Chief” playing in the background. He flashed us a weary smile and plopped on the sofa to fall sound asleep.

Phew…it is not easy being the mother of a presidential candidate. The ups. The downs.

Worrying about your little boy risking his neck out there, out on a very long tree limb…even though that little boy is six feet tall and can handle disappointment.

Still…moms are moms.

And now…I am trying to decide whether my friends should refer to me as The First Mother or Queen Mum.
