Obama the parent

He's not on vacation. It's called parenting.

I just came back from two days at the beach with two small kids.

Recreational activities: preventing Big Brother from drowning and Little Brother from eating sand.

Exercise: pushing all-terrain stroller through sand.

Restaurant options: somewhat constrained by width of all-terrain stroller and availability of plain cheese pizza.

Evening entertainment: Monopoly with a 4.5 year old.

Leisure: being allowed to sleep in on Sunday… until 7:30am…

So I loved this twitter post, weighing in on the Obama vacation controversy:

“Ask any parent who takes their kids to the beach for 2 days if they had a vacation. #ObamaNotOnVacation#ItsCalledParenting
