Say What?

We had Gabriel's third birthday party today - just a small get-together with family. One of the gifts he received was a stuffed toy donkey. My brother, feeling very clever, I'm sure, suggested naming the donkey "Jack". Haha.

Me: Gabriel--what's your donkey's name? Should we call him Jack?
Gabriel: No! He is da president!
Me: What?!
[Everyone is laughing hysterically]
Gabriel: Bama!
Me: What? Why is he the president?
Gabriel: Because the president is a donkey!!

Oh. My. Gosh. I have no idea where he got that. We're not huge fans of Obama, but we don't call him names and if we do have conversations about him, it's generally after Gabe has gone to bed (who has time to talk politics with a three-year-old running around?).


Gabe's new stuffed donkey has been named. We call him "Mr. President"

I'll be adding this to the list of reasons why my kid is awesome.


  1. Ha ha ha! Thanks for the laugh this morning!

  2. Would it be because he sees the donkey outline for the republican or democrat? (which ever one it stands for). He is one smart boy :)
