Obama Puppet, Six Years Later

Barack Obama is about six and a half years into his eight years as president, but I was taken all the way back to 2008 with a post I was tagged in on Facebook the other day. That year my nephew was four and enamored with Obama (as many of us were). He decided that an Obama puppet was the one thing he really wanted for his birthday, and started lobbying me way back at Christmas to make this happen. His mom and I conspired to make him one to surprise him on his birthday in June, and he loved that thing.

She came upon the puppet while cleaning out his room last week. Barack looks pretty good for his age, don’t you think?

This was during my “fat puppet” phase, but beside the hair needing a little more gray in it, I’d say this design is still pretty accurate, wouldn’t you?
