I took Bear with me to vote this afternoon in Alaska's hotly contested Primary Election. Whoohoo, it's gonna be a late night in front of the telly to see how things shape up.
Bear was a little unsure of which process we were undertaking, calling it "going boating" instead. I clarified the word and he asked what "that voting thing is". For lack of a better explanation, I told him voting was how we decide who is going to be in charge.
He replied, "Mommy, I already know who is in charge. You."
At least now I know some of what I tell him sinks in.
