This week’s topic? The election. What else? It went a little something like this…
Me : Hey Bea, do you know what happens on the 4th?
Bea : [Flashes a quick glance to Mommy and then looks at me a little annoyed] No.
Me : Well, we get to vote. It is a REALLY big deal. It means we get a new president. Do you know what a president is?
Bea : No, but I know what voting is.
Me : [A little shocked] You do? What is voting?
Bea : We pick a new guy.
Me : Well, yeah. So whom are you going to pick?
Bea : [In a rather matter of fact way, and not flinching from her near complete crayon masterpiece] McCain.
Me : Huh. Why?
Bea : [again annoyed] Because, Aunt Coz, he is the guy with the white hair.
Me : Well, yeah, but Mimi and Mommy and I all have brown hair. So, why don’t you vote for the guy with brown hair?
Bea : [lets out a BIG sigh and attempts an eye roll] Because I like WHITE HAIR and I am voting for McCain!
Alrighty then. How can you really argue with the logic of a 4 year old? I mean she actually seems to have thought it out more than some voters, so I will let her own it.
Do not fret Eb, you have 14 years of “grown up” lessons before she votes.
EARLY VOTING ENDS FRIDAY!!
