Ok, I have done my bit to educate my daughters in the world changing events taking place in USA today. In spite of much protesting I switched off Harry Hill's TV Burp from SKY+ and put on Sky News so they could watch Barack Obama being sworn in as President.
Pickle : Is that him?
Pickle: Is that him?
Pickle: Is THAT him?
Me: No, that's a woman.
Me: THAT ONE!! THAT'S HIM!
I explained that he was making a promise, similar to the ones Pickle and Picklesister made at Rainbows and Brownies. Good so far.
After watching this I checked Pickle's understanding of what she had just seen.
Me: Pickle? Who is that man?
Pickle: Um, um err...Gordon Brown?
Me: No, he is Barack Obama. What country is he now in charge of?
Me: Close enough Pickle.
Pickle: Can we have Harry Hill back on now?
