Shirt: Simply Obama – can be purchased through CafePress.

1. Haircut, Lunch at BW-3 –
I love getting a haircut. I don’t do it often, but find it so relaxing. At the salon, the woman and stylist in the next chair were talking about Obama and how they don’t think when it comes down to it, this country will elect a president with dark skin. I heard them saying they weren’t afraid of him, but they know people who are. I suppose there are people who feel that way, but it’s kind of shocking to me. I have to think that when it really comes down to it, it’s the McCain/Palin ticket that will cause people to pause when casting their votes.

2. “Omama” dinner – through our efforts to practice attachment parenting, I’ve met some really awesome mamas who I connect well with. We share a meal together once every couple of months, and had dinner at a great Mediterranean restaurant tonight. We’d talked about trying to do something to encourage other mamas to be omamas, but didn’t come up with any great ideas that work with our own busy omama schedules. Instead we just discussed some of our own hopes and fears related to the election. Always so good to spend time with friends who enrich your life and encourage you to be a better person and parent. Even better when you pair it with some awesome lentil soup! G started us on the Omama term. We ask him if he can say Obama and he says Omama! So, so adorable.

I've made a commitment to wear an Obama shirt each day until the election - a total of 60 days. I document each day here. The faqs will tell you more.
