Shocked and Amazed
My parents went to a segregated elementary school. My children will be born when there is a black president. What a difference 50 years can make. Isn't this country amazing?! Last night we stayed up to watch the results, but I fell asleep after Obama won Ohio - I knew it was over then. K stayed up and watched the whole thing. They kept showing footage of street parties in DC and K said that she wanted to say "Let's go be a part of this. It's historic!" but then she looked at me sleeping and decided it was best for me and the baby if we just stayed home.
