We Vote, not Boat, in November

Aidan was more than a little disappointed yesterday when Marathon Girl and I took him voting. For some reason he thought I said "boating." When we arrived at our poll location, he seemed a little perplexed that there wasn’t any water or boats in sight. "No water," Aidan said.

I didn’t understand why he was talking about water.

"Are you thirsty?" I asked

"No boats," Aidan said.

Everything clicked.

"Were not going boating. We’re vvvvvvvoting," I said stressing the "v"

"Vvvvvvoting," Aidan repeated.

Fortunately the poll workers gave him several I Voted stickers which seemed to more than make up for any disappointment he was experiencing. Being able to help Dad cast a couple of votes helped too.
