Election day is a big deal at our house. Ethan and Alex like to go to the polls–to make sure their votes are being cast appropriately. We got to our polling place at 7:30am. Ethan went to the voting booth with Dad, Alex with Mom.
After school, no doubt after tons of political discussion, Alex confronted Ethan in the car:
Alex: Ethan, who did Dad vote for?
Alex: Come on Ethan, did Dad vote for Obama?
Ethan: I can’t tell you.
Alex: WHAT?! ETHAN IT’S IN THE FAMILY!
Ethan: …Sorry…It’s not my secret to tell.
Both boys stayed up late to watch the election coverage and ran around the house screaming, “WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!” when Obama was announced the new President-Elect. Then they promptly passed out on the couch.
It was a good night.
