I posted here today.
In other words, today was my first voting experience. No longer am I a voting virgin.
The entire Crooked household was up before the crack of dawn to line up for this historical election, including JC. Unlike when I was 7 years old, JC knows more about the world that he lives in than I did at his age. For a second grader he is quite aware of the candidates and the pressing issues. Even if his main issue right now is if the national anthem is getting changed(at least he takes interest).
All last night I heard, "Mommy. PLEASE don't vote for Obama, I heard he wants to change the National Anthem!"
So this morning my little man stood right next to me as I casted my vote. However, I did make him turn around so he couldn't read who exactly I was voting for. Finally, after 10+ years I voted and it makes me feel even better that my husband and I had our son there to see just how important voting really is. I'm guessing that if I had known at his age, I wouldn't have stayed a voting virgin for so long.
Happy Election day y'all.
I'm guessing it's gonna be a wild ride!
