The election is too close to call in our house. But the Mac kids aren't voting Obama or McCain. Today, we're teaching them how the election works by having them choose which they like better -- ice cream or pizza. Jacob, hands down -- or up, actually, since the voting was by show of hands -- chose ice cream whereas Brady was adamant pizza should win this election. Lucy surprisingly used her brand new American citizen status to support Ralph Nader. (Which would you vote for -- pizza or ice cream?)
Four years ago, Jeff and I -- living in a completely different part of Los Angeles -- strolled our baby Jacob down to the local polling place. It was the first time my vote wasn't selfishly all about me.
And if you're in the voting mood, vote for Alex's photo in the Adoptive Families photo contest!
