the rock

Tuesday afternoon, I was watching some of the inauguration festivities on TV when Jack came and sat beside me. He asked what I was watching, I told him and he responded that they learned about the new president at school.
"Oh," I said to him, "what's his name?"
"The Rock Obama," was his reply.
Through my laughter I corrected him, "Barack...let's sound it out."
After a few minutes of practice, he was saying Barack.
We sat there watching TV a few more moments and then the new president came on the screen.
"There he is, Mom!" Jack said, "The Rock!"

**Speaking of our new president...if you haven't voted in my poll, GO VOTE!!**
