patting the president’s head

I’d like to throw it out there, again, that if this photo doesn’t melt your heart, then I suppose you are simply dead inside. I MEAN, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This is too cute for words… and as Casey, AM and I discussed last night – a really important visual and tactile experience for this young kid and the rest of the world.

I just love it.

The official description of the photo from The Official White House Photostream on flickr reads:

President Barack Obama bends over so the son of a White House staff member can pat his head during a family visit to the Oval Office May 8, 2009. The youngster wanted to see if the President’s haircut felt like his own. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

COME ON! Too adorable. Guanabee asks if perhaps this little tyke should now be named Head of The Peanut Butter & Cookies Committee. I couldn’t agree more.

H/t to Alicia Menendez for bringing this to my attention. LOVES IT!
