I voted...

Lily gets the vote

I voted today.

And just like every other time I have voted since having children, I brought my kids along. Joey was 4 months old kicking his fat little legs from a Baby Bjorn the first time he "voted." Now he is ten.

As parents, we repeat certain rituals every year on holidays and birthdays so that those rituals become traditions that are etched in our childrens' memories. I know that I have incorporated many of the traditions from my own childhood into my family life today.

So the way I look at it...why not treat election day like a holiday and perform the simple ritual of voting with my kids so that it becomes one of their childhood traditions?
