On Monday, I posted a clip of my two-year-old playing with her U.S. Presidents placemat alongside our "can you guess the president by his placemat portrait?" quiz. Gawker re-posted the video last night, and today it showed up on the Yahoo! homepage and NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.

Charlotte's 15 minutes (or 55 seconds) of fame haven't gone to her head. When we tried to watch her segment back on TiVo, she protested. "I want to watch Clifford the Big Red Dog instead," she said.


Update (2/21): Charlotte was on Rachael Ray for Presidents' Day this morning. Here's her segment. This should make for a few interesting pages in her baby book.
