This Is What I Get For Trying To Teach Them About the Electoral Process

This afternoon Michelle Obama was in West Allis, WIsconsin- just about 5 miles down the road from my house. I picked up the girls from school and headed out with a bevy of snacks in tow, a huge bottle of water, and a backpack filled with toys, crayons, notebooks, and two ipods. We waited in a big crowd of excited, friendly people for about two hours and ended up in a spot right in front of the podium. Yeah! Then, right when Michelle was being introduced and walked out to speak I heard the words I had been dreading to hear:

"MOM-MEE, I have to go POTTY!"

Gah. No photo. Nothing. I tried frantically to get one as Ava yelled at me but couldn't get my camera to focus. I probably could have figured it out if I didn't have a four-year-old grabbing her behind and crying. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.

Here's Michelle. So close, yet so far away.

  1. I am so sorry! That would totally happen to us too. We have that kind of luck basically all of the time.
