Vice President / President / Prime Minister : What's in a name anyway?

Thanks B, JG. My first act as Vice President is to make wine hats mandatory for all parents. It will make the harrowing pick up / drop off car rage all the more sedate and bearable, am I right?

Me: "Guess what, Miss6?" Miss6: Me: "Hey, Miss6!" Miss6: I turn the TV off Me: "GUESS. WHAT. MISS6?!?!?!" Miss6: "Oh hi Mummy!" Me: "Yes  yes, hi.  Now. Guess what?" Miss6: "What?" Me: "Mummy's the new Vice President of the P&C"** Miss6: "....A girl?" Me: "Umm...yes. Don't you know who our Prime Minister is?" Miss6: "Obama?" Me: "Umm...no.  It is a girl." Miss6: "Ohhh. Julia Gillard?" Me: "Yes!" Miss6: "Julia Gillard is the Vice President of Australia?!" I face plant the table. Like, for reals. Me: "No, she is the big boss. She is the Prime Minister." Miss6: "But you're not the boss" (statement, not question) Me: "Yeah, anyway get dressed. It's time for school." **P&C for those of you not within the confines of Aus, is Parents & Citizens Association, Parent Teacher Association - whatever they call the group of parents who get involved in schooling in your location on planet earth. It is normally associated with go-getter, committed parents who are full of enthusiasm and energy and time and love for their school community.  They are people who get shit done. In our case, they had a vacancy that needed filling, and so I stepped in instead, in lieu of any of those sort of people being available.
