    Hasn't it been great? My kids are so into this. It's been so much fun.

    Don't be such a quitter! I demand you all stay up! It's only 2.30pm here so I've got hours and hours of pleasurable viewing ahead of me. Oh, and some repug chucklehead is trying to toss some rightwing bullshit into the mix...will Obama be able to work with repugs, does Obama understand the terrorist threat (of course he does! He's a terrorist himself, right?)...blah, blah, blah...

    And yes, I'm glad my heathens have experienced this. It's raised all sorts of interesting questions from them and it's been fun discussing things. Plus, I got to quote Dr. King to them....

    My oldest wanted to know why his best school friend told him that Obama was going to steal our money and give it to other people. That was a looooong conversation.

    For the rest of time, we will be able to say that we witnessed a major first in US history. Here and forever more, we are going to witness a black man become Pres. I have goosebumps just thinking about it!

    I'm letting my 11-yr old stay up a bit longer. It's been fun sharing this with them.
    That's so cute. I'm letting my kids watch. We had a little Election Night party with snacks and drinks. They've had a blast.

    So did we! We had an "all American meal" chosen by my son -- hot dogs and french fries. I made star sugar cookies -- I only had red sprinkles. The kids were pissed at me. My daughter said it was a bad omen.
