Today I brought Ella to vote. This is her very first presidential election, so I was trying to explain things to her beforehand. Here's how the conversation went.
"El, we're going to vote for the new president."
"What's a president?"
"It's sort of like the king."
"The king of all wild things?!"
"Well, sort of..."
She was a little disappointed that neither Max nor any wild things were actually at the polling place, but she was pretty excited to get a sticker. She was also very excited to pee in the potty there, but just about lost it when the automatic flusher went off. Oh well, at least we cast our vote.
She spent the rest of the evening running around the house yelling, "Go Barack Obama! Go Barack Obama!"
That's my girl.
