Last thing

...about the elections...cuz' I don't know about you but I'm kinda sick of it and glad it's over!  But Noah was just so funny about the whole thing, I had to document some of his comments.

Noah:  Mom, who is dad voting for?
Me: Obama
Noah: (GASP) That's who we voted for!

But the funniest was definitely last night when Noah was watching the results come in with us.  He kept staring at the numbers on the screen and updating us every 3 minutes on who was winning.  He was obsessed with Obama's "points" (electoral votes).  At one point Noah had to go to the bathroom...number 2...which means he's in the bathroom for about 30 minutes.  So he kept yelling at us, "Is Obama winning?!?"  "Mom, how many points does Obama have?"  We did eventually make him go to bed, and promised to tell him in the morning who had won.  Noah didn't forget.  The first thing he said to me was, "Did Obama win?"  When I told him he had Noah said, "Yes!  We voted for him and he won!  Cuz he's cool."  When I picked him up from preschool today he said to me, "Mom, I told Michael that Obama won!"

I was really surprised at how interested he was...and I wonder if he will remember this day.

Maybe a budding politician? What a cutie!

When Noah is old enough to get a job, and his income taxes are at 70% and the government is the provider of all his goods and services.....he will have Obama to thank.

I need to kidnap him so we can begin the deprograming.

Summer, I have to say I agree with your dad on this one :). Can Noah come over for some de-programming... um I mean play date?? ;)

... Sarah was quite distraught with the whole election experience. They had a vote in her class and she came home almost in tears saying, "Mom orack obama won in my class. I TOLD everyone they should vote for McCain, but some of them wouldn't listen to me!"

Like father like son.

My kids kept saying "We're rooting for blue" (BYU football) and I had to keep reminding them "No, this time we're rooting for red."

Sam was into it too. He was completely pro McCain, but only because he has 'plumped cheeks'. He was devastated that he lost. Looks like 4-5 year olds are all about being on the winning team right now, huh?
