Raising a Liberal in a Red State

The twins were playing with legos and the boy made his lego man a bad guy named Tom. Every time Tom came near Claudia’s lego girl the lego girl would say “Hello, Cutie!”

I asked Claudia if she was going to date bad guys.

She said “No. I only like to pretend to like bad guys. I won’t date them in real life. I will date boys.” Then she added “Unless I move into Washington D.C., then I will date girls because it is legal there.”

Raising an open minded child: check.

Next up: Nightmares about my daughter dating bad guys.


She just told me that if she was going to date a bad guy she would choose The Joker.

I really hope she moves to Washington D.C.

  1. Oh My. That is wonderful!

  2. Tee hee. At least she has plans, right?

  3. Just as long as she doesn’t date someone who doesn’t open with a better line than “Hello, cutie!”

  4. Oh. My. Awesomeness.

  5. Aunt Chris says:

    I love that girl!

  6. twojams (Shannon) says:

    That is hilarious! Love it. From a fellow red-stater. (Same one, I think?)

  7. Man, I hope they don’t legalize cocaine in DC too, you’re really going to have trouble.

  8. Make sure to bring that up at her future wedding! (whether its to a man or woman…or The Joker)

  9. I hope it is a man or a woman. The Joker will be a little old for her.

    Plus the whole Super Villain thing… Batman would always be all up in their junk, messing with my Grandbabies.

  10. OMG, I am LOVING her!!

  11. So many kinds of awesome!

  12. your awesome parenting seems to be payin off. (fingers crossed!) and the girl child is pretty hilarious, i must say. excellent deduction skills :)

  13. hawt.

  14. I hope it won’t be bad girls.

  15. As someone who (still) has a Mr. Danger thing, I can sympathize.

    However, I did not marry Mr. Danger. I married John-Boy Walton. Go figure.

  16. Come on, you really don’t think she’d go the Heath Ledger route instead?

  17. I asked her.

    Then I showed her pictures. She chose Nicholson.

    There is no accounting for her tastes.

  18. Friggin. Hilarious!
