  •  I was so hoping that my 5-year old would bust out (9+ / 0-)

    with "Mitt Romney doesn't like poor people" when we went to vote last weekend. She didn't, but she did hug an Obama yard sign that was outside the polling place (much to the delight of two young women who were canvassing for the Dem candidate for State Senate). :)

    Her elementary school is having a mock election on Tuesday and she came home this weekend full of anxiety that she might vote for the wrong person because, as she put it, "I've never voted before!" I assured her that she has 13 years to practice before it matters.

    I love kids.
