Today, I took my Aria and Alexander to the polls to witness democracy at work. I've spent the last few days explaining the presidential campaign to Aria and the importance and privilege of voting. She was SO excited to be able to stand next to me as I voted; I even let her push a few of the buttons for me(don't worry, it was supervised). She was being very good and quiet so I could concentrate, then I heard an excited squeal:

A:"Eee! I can't believe it! This is so exciting! Who is going to win to be the President, Momma?"

M:"I don't know yet, honey. We'll have to wait and see."

A: "Ooo! Maybe YOU!"

(Several hours later, she even said, "Momma. Did you win?" Hey. It could happen :)

I'd vote for you! Even if you can't sew. By the way our college sewing class we took had the opposite effect on me. I actually learned to sew but I limit myself to very straight lines. (I made an exception for the Packman costume this year.)

I would be the first mother! (no comments, please)

That is so cute. I think it's great that you teach them about our country while their young. :)
