Voting With Little Ones

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...

Cute story. Maybe next Halloween he will want to be the president instead of the ENT doctor. Remember this story... he'll want to hear it when he's old enough to vote!

He sounds so cute!

By the way, I am working on my guest post and will have it to you the beginning of next week. Thanks again for asking me! :)
