I Voted!

I took the kids this morning to vote. They, of course, thought the coolest thing was the stickers. But I was happy to introduce them to this wonderful right we have as Americans. And for anyone wondering about my politics, as mentioned before, if you'd been in the room you would have heard me calling out, "Hey, you signed me in as a Democrat. I'm voting Republican."

So, now you know. This small-SUV driving, organic feeding, all-terrain strollering, homemade baking, Pampers-using, baby wearing mom, who sends her kids to a church-based preschool and doesn’t allow TV in the house is not who you all thought.

In reality, I'm a Republican turned Indpendent these days. But I had many, many of you fooled.

Em was thrilled with the sticker too... AND she told me to vote for the name that I had decided against! (Loudly, btw, while we were in the booth. We need to work on that.)

Well, a little too late but my "vote" would have been that you were a Republican. Probably pretty obvious that I am a Democrat. Can we still be friends?

LOL, I knew :). FWIW, I am an independent, but I almost always vote democratic in national elections and frequently vote republican in the local ones.

What a shocker! ; )

I almost didn't get to vote. Cade was with me and ran right up to the electronic voting booth with my card, announcing he was ready to "play this game". The game with the easily accessible, toddler-friendly touch screen. Crisis narrowly averted....
