We headed out bright and early this morning to cast our ballots. Despite our reservations about the choices, it is our civic duty after all.
I feel strongly that we need to demonstrate this act- the right, privilege, AND duty of it- to our children. So it was a no-brainer to take them with us. Sure, we could have gone at separate times and maybe made life a tad easier. But who said parenting little ones was supposed to be easy?
Of course, I can't lie... I did wish for a brief moment that I had gone alone when my 3-year old almost got us kicked out of the polls.
"How 'bout McCain?" he asked every person in line.
Hmmm... perhaps we'll work on election etiquette before the next vote...
