Yesterday,  I did my parently duty and used the day to educate my children about the historic inaugural event taking place…

* My two-year-old watched the television coverage patiently-enthralled at all the vehicles with sirens escorting the new president down Pennsylvania Avenue.

* He danced with glee every time a marching band with drums went by during the big parade.

* And he carefully studied each limousine every time one rolled by a network TV camera.

* Then, at the end of the day, I rocked my infant to sleep to the sweet music of Alicia Keyes singing at the neighborhood Inaugural Ball.


You know, they’re never too young too learn.
