Today - I am thankful to be an American. I live in a country that has a say in our government. I voted today and it has never felt so important. We all know which way I voted, but I am so thankful that I actually have a choice.
Today - even Brady got to vote in his Pre-K class. His teacher, Mrs. Allison had voting activities. She talked about the candidates (I'm sure not much - they're only 4 for goodness sakes) and handed out a paper with the 2 candidates. Obama was circled in blue and McCain was circled in red. The class was asked to cast their vote...guess which one he picked??!! Blue - Obama!! I have to admit I was a little excited when I found out who he chose.
Here is the conversation Bryan had with Brady:
Bryan: Why did you pick Obama?
Brady: Because I like blue and he is blue.
Bryan: You do? Why do you like blue?
Brady: My Red Sox shirts and hats are blue.
Bryan: I see. Any other reason?
Brady: Yeah. The other guy in red is really old and he looks like he smells and farts a lot.
Bryan: Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha
When Bryan told me this story - I almost fell out of my chair laughing. I will admit - I tinkled a little bit, I was laughing so hard. Bryan said he had to try hard not to crash the car he was laughing so hard.
Ahhhh...the joys of parenthood AND being an American!
