My kids started school yesterday and I’m so excited! (50 percent fewer kids to entertain for 7 hours? …. Yes, please!) As social media fills with cute pictures of kids wearing brand-new backpacks and holding signs announcing another year of learning, I am inspired. Education is one of those things that can greatly improve our quality of life.
As an adult, I’ve tried to take to heart the idea of “lifelong learning”. But I’ve gotta tell ya, politics doesn’t make it easy. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about politics that makes it scary and intimidating, it’s all the vocabulary. Words get thrown around by experts and the rest of us are left in the dust.
Personally, I love researching and picking apart words. It’s interesting to understand where words come from and what they mean. That’s why I’ve decided to add a section to my blog…..
It’s basically “Mom’s political encyclopedia” where I can give a little more information on common terms used in the political environment. I’ll share them as regular posts first and then store them on a separate tab for future reference.
If there are terms you’d like explained better, send them my way and I’ll start researching them. There won’t be much in Mompolpedia at first, but eventually we’ll get a good amount of words and phrases.
And allow me to extend the invitation to you! If there are terms you would like to define or help research so the rest of us can better understand them, you are most cordially invited! Comment on my blog or send me a personal message, whichever works best for you! Also, as I make an effort to define words, I welcome additional information and context to help us all understand the terms better.
So… are there any words or phrases you’d like defined?
