Election Day!

November 6, 2012

written by Cathy Baker, mom of two tween girls, living in the Missouri Ozarks

Just a friendly reminder to vote today!! Democracy. It IS a wonderful thing.  Here’s a bit of  election humor, what the candidates would look like if they switched hair:

Also, with my girls getting older, and understanding more about the election process, it’s got me thinking. How am I teaching them about the democratic process?! What responsibilities do I have as a parent to instill in them this right, this responsibility, this privilege of being able to vote?  And how can I best do this? If anyone has any ideas to share, I’d love to hear it!  I did find these ideas over at A Grande Life blog…

Also, I might just have to make up a Jello Poke Cake to enjoy while we watch the election results come in tonight.  I LOVE America!

    I engage my son by taking him to vote with me. I have done that for YEARS since he was young. (I think back then it was more about the bake sale at the polling site. =)
    In fact this year I wanted to go while he was at school, but he insisted that the go with me. I usually let him mark my ballot for me too.
