When I went to pick Audrey up from preschool today, she came walking out of her classroom all excited.
"I voted today," she said, pointing at her "I voted today" sticker.
"Really?" I asked, raising an eyebrow at her teacher.
"Tell her what you voted for," her teacher said.
"I voted for cookies," she announced. "See?"
She held up a little ballot, with an blue marker'd "X" in one of the boxes. (The ballot was marked "cookies" or "brownies" with little pictures of each.)
"So you're a member of the Chocolate Chip party?" I asked her.
"Mommy, you're silly," she answered as she dismissed me with a wave of her hand.
If only all decisions we had to make were that easy.
