To see, or to be seen

My daughter, about whom I have written a few times before, is leaving for college shortly, but living with her has always been an adventure.  Some may remember her recent appearance on ABC (in which they showed her getting her prom picture taken, and my taking it as well, so I was on too, but more briefly):

Well, today, my daughter was working at an event hosting John Edwards for a town hall meeting in Cleveland.  Here she is with John Edwards (below):

You know the amazing thing?  Everybody else at these events is there to see famous people, but my daughter is there to be seen.  First, Dennis Kucinich recognizes her and goes over to say, "Hey, you used to volunteer for my campaign."  Then, one of the Secret Service men came over to her and said, "I know who you are.  I saw you on TV last week".

See what I mean?  Stand back, world, because my little girl is coming at you.  Don't say I didn't warn you.

Your daughter is a delightful young woman, and Kelsey (one of my daughters, for those that don't know) and I had a blast hanging with her (oh yeah, and you too ;)) in Germany.

Tell her she has my vote ;)

It is such a wonderful blessing to be able to watch our kids grow up and become their own incredible individual selves. OK, it's bittersweet watching them go off (and I am SOOO glad to be near enough geographically now that I can see my son fairly often).

Awesome that your daughter's getting so much recognition already. She's going places.
