Infinite Possibilities

This morning my son was cuddling next to me while I ate my cereal and listened to NPR. The radio mentioned something about Senator Obama, and I just smiled and shook my head. I keep having these little moments where his win in the primary just makes me smile.

My eight year old son asked me why I was smiling.

I told him that I was just so happy that he and his sister would grow up in a world where it was completely reasonable that they could be whatever they wanted to be, doctors, lawyers, CEOs, President of the United States.

He looked at me like what I was saying didn't make any sense.

I explained that when I was a kid, it didn't feel that way.

He still didn't understand.

And that made me smile even more.
