Why you SHOULDN'T take your children to vote..

Because if they are a certain psycho opinionated 6 year old, with zero social inhibitions about making their voice heard, who really thinks that 6 year olds should be able to vote, AND only knows the name on one candidate, it can really turn into an embarrassing thing! LOL!

It was not easy to fill out my ballot with DD yelling at me "BUT I WANNA VOTE FOR JOHN MCCAIN!!!" :doh

So cute! Ah, how those little voices carry! Also, good for you getting out and voting ESPECIALLY with the little one in tow. Hope your lines weren't too long.

At least DD new the name of a candidate!

I had a teenage trick-or-treater ask me why I had a "Obama/ BIDDEN" sign in my yard. "Bidden".

I called my 9 year old over to explain to her who Sen. Obama and Sen. BIDEN were. Gah!

Definitely laughing my ass off here!

Well, I won and lost my senator at the same time. How weird is that? Here in DE, Biden won for senate AND of course he is now VP-elect. So our current gov (she is at the end of her term) will select our new senator. The conservatives are pissed.

Meanwhile, my son was so not into going with us to vote. He sat quietly in the sanctuary of the church and played a video game. I guess he didn't learn much about the process... Heh heh.

Funny! My 6 year old daughter told me she voted for McCain in the school election. I asked her why (we're an Obama household) and she said, "They told us all about McCain and Obama, and McCain has lots of pets. I want to see pets in the White House."

She's very glad to know that Sasha and Malia are getting a puppy now. :-)

Loved this. Did you see me blog about taking the kids to vote. It really is a good experience for them. And I am so happy that my care enough to make their opinions known. Good for them! And we love Danielle!

Would be really funny if he was all about the candidate YOU were not for! Kids are great, and at 6?! You must be doing something right for him to even have a clue about it all!! Congrats
