Starting them young

Not only did our three-year-old go with us to vote this morning, and not only did the election worker allow him to put his mom's ballot into the scanner, but at lunchtime the boy joined us at a busy Chattanooga intersection (he stayed well removed from the curb, of course) as all of us wore our official campaign apparel and enthusiastically waved at passing motorists as we held up our signs.

It was one of the best family activities in which we've ever participated.

Joe -

Good for you! My 5-week old received his first ballot box experience today, as well.

Of course, if you clothed him in Obama gear, I will have to call DCS and report you for child abuse. :)

Cheers,

Rob

My son, Will, had his first vote at 4:30 today.... He is 8 months old and screamed because I wouldn't let him push the buttons.
