In terms of being outlandish and wildly out of touch with how the rest of the world sees him, Mitt Romney is the Chris Brown of politics.
On FB last week, my cousin was all, “how dare the Obamas talk about paying back student loans, what do they know, they don’t understand the middle class, blah blah blah, go Mitt!” She’s a really nice girl, and it doesn’t really matter to me that she and I are on the opposite ends of the political spectrum, but I lol’d at her conviction that Mitt Romney “gets” the middle class. I guess a guy who needs to install a car elevator in one (“one”) of his houses probably would consider $250,000 to middle income. “But you guys, he used his ironing board as a dining room table at one point (while living off the proceeds from some stocks that his father had given him)! He knows what it’s like to struggle!” That guy totally feels my middle class pain, for sure. Oh, Mittens.
Anyway. Sorry for all the reblogs/whatever posts lately, folks, but I’m on vacation this week and this is the best I can do. And when I say I’m on vacation, I mean that my mother is here helping out for a week while Matt’s in Toronto. And yes, having a full-time set of extra hands to help deal with a toddler and a baby basically feels like a vacation for me. I’m pretty sure any parent that stays at home with two or more children knows exactly what I’m talking about, amirite?
In posts to come: Milo’s first trip to the Coney Island amusement park is a success, turns out the dude loves roller coasters and thinks the Wonder Wheel is awright but “too slow, can go more faster please?” Also, Milo’s first week at preschool! And also, my baby is gigantic! Not quite 4 months old and the mini-dude is wearing 6-9 month clothing.
