ANOTHER UPDATE, 11 P.M.
YES! Thank you, thank you… I’ve loved getting all of your teary, hopeful emails about our 2008 election.
I just emailed Eathan to let him know that although we might not always see eye to eye, I wholeheartedly love his election post today, about our future. That goes for our kids, too!
Eathan, who blogs from Texas, says about Obama’s victory that we now have the chance to expand “our dating choices, relationship choices, and our future. That idea exhilarates me.”
UPDATE, 9 A.M.:
Obama Mama just back from the polls!
For the first time ever, my sweet girl woke up at 6:30 a.m. ALL by herself, and then made herself breakfast, and got dressed… She came to my bedroom: “Mommy, I’m ready to vote!”
We rode our bikes to the polls and voted… She proudly walked into school with her “I voted” sticker.
I just got home from leading a local single parents support group and I can’t sleep. Whenever I think about voting tomorrow, I get so excited. Then, I get all teary.
Part of M’s homework is go to the polls with me to vote tomorrow. She needs to write down five things she learned. Then, she needs to write a letter to our next president.
Just now, M yelled out: “Mom, I’ll be an early riser tomorrow!”
That’s my girl.
There are so many propositions to vote for/against in California, and I’ve got my decisions made on all of them. Whew.
P.S. My heart goes out to Obama’s family: he lost his grandmother to cancer today.
Again, I’m humbled by how important grandparents are.
Just today, I got “the call” from M’s school: she has lice, for the first time. I had to pick her up at lunch. After washing and more washing, my Dad came over to keep M company so I could get back to work…. Thanks Dad!
This photo was taken four years ago this month (!). Looking back, using my kid as a billboard probably wasn’t appropriate, but pink was her favorite color — and she wanted to wear this shirt every day!
