Lifetime Mom Appointment

Collin decided markers weren't just for paper. He had a ball "decorating" his face. Silly boy!

A few days ago, Caleb approached me. He looked me square in the eyes and said, "Your poll numbers are dropping. If you don't watch it, you might not get reelected."

I smiled and asked him if that was a promise or a threat. It certainly depends on that day whether I wish for a lifetime mom appointment or a position subject to term limits. Nonetheless, I told Caleb I'm a lifetime civil servant to four young boys, meaning I'm not swayed by public opinion (or bribery). Instead, I strive to represent and serve my constituents (sons) based on firmly held principals and ideals.

I told Caleb I'd love if my "public" persona rose, but that might not happen for a year or two.
