Elena is equal parts whiny and hyper today, but I got her to sit down after Biden was sworn in. Itzhak Perlman and Yo-Yo Ma were playing, and she's rather taken with violins, so I pointed out the instruments, and showed her the cello (I'm not sure she's seen one before), and she said she thought she'd play the violin someday.

Then Roberts was introduced and the Obamas came up. She spent most of the actual oath part looking at Michelle Obama (who shares a name with one of E's teachers) and noticing the sparkly gold dress and I pointed out the girls (see, those are his little girls!). When [livejournal.com profile] galagan came in a minute later, she pointed out Malia and Sasha to him, as well as Michelle. Then I told her that I wanted to listen to Obama talking, and she has stayed relatively quiet. (He's finishing up now - I'm half listening.)

I don't think she'll remember this day, but maybe. Maybe.

I teared up a few times earlier - I will totally lose my rep as a cynic. I liked the speech - sort of a call to arms. It's an exciting day, to be sure.
