let yourself be heard


ohio is an exciting place to be today!
i voted bright and early this morning while my family slept. max was so happy to see my sticker when he woke up. he's been so curious about the political process this year--asking loads of questions...watching the debates. we don't talk about where matt and i lean politically this year...not just yet. it's much more fun to see max make up his mind on his own...learning the process before partisanship!
he spent the morning trying to guess who i cast my ballet for-- "did you vote for a boy?"..."is he already president or does he have fancy hair?"

happy happy election day, friends!

  2. Thank you for not pushing a political agenda here by letting your readers know who you voted for. That is soooooooo appreciated by this faithful reader. You are a class act, Miss Katie.

  3. Hooray for Ohio voters! You are the best & Max's question is oh so cute. It's nice that he's getting a chance to watch and decide for himself. Parents could all do a lesson to teach their children like that.

  5. What a fantastic idea!
    I think I'll do the same for my kids next time (since one hasn't been born yet and the other just turned 1, neither is very interested yet) although both my parents, my husband, and myself are voting for 4 separate candidates.

  6. My (conservative) parents knew I was a Dem before I did.. I remember being eight or nine and my Dad telling me he knew I would be liberal because of my interest in things like the environment and helping others. I guess it didn't hurt that I created a picture book in first grade celebrating Bill Clinton winning the election. :)

  10. that is so sweet! PBS had a show on this afternoon about voting (daniel tigers neighborhood). the kids voted on whether to go to the aquarium or the zoo. it was a good conversation started with my kiddos. I think its great that you're letting him figure it out for himself!

  19. oh Max, I love you!

    Seriously, Ohio is such a big state when it comes to the elections. My county (Stark) was one of the last to get the results. Craziness I tell ya.

  21. As a fellow Ohioan I got the same sticker! My 6 year old girl informed me that the one with the "crazy hair" was not serious enough to be president. Plus, I think she has a bit of a crush on Obama. HA!

  22. i think it's great that you don't tell your kids! my parents' opinions really influenced my own when i was younger and i'm paying for it now--with lots of research and questions so i can choose my own party with unbiased intelligence (easier said than done!)

    xo,

  24. The little one I take care of told me she was going to vote for Mo Willems (she loves his books)
    Upon learning he was not an option she decided she would settle for "Rocco Bama."
