Running for Presents

This morning, on our way to the grocery store, I drove by the church where I vote to see if there was much of a line. Thankfully, there were only two cars in the parking lot so we were able to pop in and out in less than three minutes. I did my civic duty with both boys in tow and all were rewarded with stickers.

As we were pulling out of the parking lot, Chief (my almost-four-year-old) proudly declared (or so I thought), "Mama, I want to run for president someday!"

To which I responded, "that is a very important goal! I think you can do it. It will take some hard work and important choices, but you can do it."

His ever so confident reply? "Yes. I know I can. I am very fast. I will run for the present and be first so no one else can have it. I will win."

So, we have confidence down. Generosity? We are working on it. As far as how democracy is conducted in our country? Maybe by the time he is 18.
