Haha!! The apple is not falling far is it?


It's a family affair here, also. I thank Tina Fey for getting my teens so interested in the election.

Jen on the Edge

Even my 8 and 10 y.o. are into the election. And, like you, I've fully shared my beliefs with my children.

I love that you're all on the same page! We're not at my house and at times it really bites.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom!

Well . . . you've seen our front door sign.


I should tape the conversation between my husband and I during the debates. It would be hysterical. It would include "What a dork!" quite a bit.


Yep, it's politics around here, too. Even my six year old has an interest!

Good work, Jenn. My daughter once had a friend over to spend the night during one of the Bush/Kerry debates. The friend's mom told me later that her daughter said watching the debate at our house was like watching a sporting event. It is.


One of the things that I have thoroughly enjoyed as my children have gotten older is being able to talk politics with them.

Ha! When McCain said that SP is a hero for all women, I snorted. Then Hugo marched his little toddler self around the house snorting too...


Alexis asked me the other day who I was going to vote for - I asked who she is going to vote for and she said, "Who ever you vote for" - she's the only one that cares a things about what I really think - tee hee - she's only 7 - she can't even vote yet.

Have a good weekend, Jenn- see you - Kellan


VERY funny Jenn. it goes both ways too. we find the silly stuff on both sides of the table. I am so over the politics. really, I don't think anything will be different either way. I am just over it all.....
take care,


I love how the whole family gets into it. :)

I am enjoying finding things wrong with each candidate...is this wrong? I just wanted them to all play fair and discuss the issues instead of attacking, ever! Lay it all on the table for us all to view and make our own decisions. Geez!


Ha! Sounds like you are all Mavericky, yourself!

OH, your family sounds fun. It really, really does!


Its very good that you include your kids in open political discussions - I see that as like setting an example of good civic behavior. NOT like slapping a sign on your small children and parading them in front of a women's clinic at an antiabortion rally. When I drive by and see that I just want to yell out "your time would be better spent working at a shelter!"

My 11 year old son told me that he was having an argument with another boy at school. I asked him what about? He said, "That guy is voting for McCain and I'm voting for Obama". I told him, "you're in jr. high. Neither of you is voting, period. But I admire your spirit, son!"
