Hoke Obama

We have a states puzzle that Layla loves to do. I hate this puzzle. It's an empty map of the states with their outlines simply drawn on, so you have to put every single state down piece by piece and not mess up the other ones that you've already put down. Not so much of a problem for us, but for a 3 year old? It's a nightmare. For an OCD perfectionist 3 year old? Torture. For that same OCD perfectionist 3 year old who is trying to do the puzzle while her baby sister attempts to eat all of the pieces? Let's just say that shit gets tense here during puzzle time.

Neither of us really expected Layla to like this puzzle, or even be interested in doing it for some time. We just liked the idea of exposing her to the concept. But she's taken to it and she loves it and we can't keep it away from her.

Now I don't know if it's in honor of our president, but Layla has officially renamed Oklahoma, Hoke Obama. And if you're picturing Obama driving old ass Ms. Daisy around, good. Cause that's the image I get every time speech impediment girl says it.

Hoke Obama. Heh.
