Stuff My Kids Say: Sweetpea for President

Sweetpea, at the grand age of 10 decided she's going to become a politician ("because South Africa needs better ones"). She is 12 now, and has remained set on a career in politics.
One evening at bedtime, Mr Pieman (aged 7) and I had this conversation:
Mr Pieman: "Mommy, the President is the boss of our country, hey?"
Me:"Kind of, but the people choose him."
Simon: "So does he boss everyone around?"
Me: "He makes important decisions."
Simon: "Well then, when my sister becomes President, I'm going to go live in a different country because I don't want to be bossed around by her!"
