Joey: "Are you and Dad voting for Barack Obama?"
Me: "Yes, Why?"
Joey: "Dustin says if Barack Obama wins we won't be able to play baseball and soccer anymore because he is going to take all the money"
At our polling place this morning, Vincent was looking around, taking everything in. He pulled me down to whisper in my ear.
Vincent: "Mom, Where is Rock Obama? Is he here?"
At preschool pick-up this morning I was informed by Vincent's teacher that he led the class in a chant of "Go Block Obama! Go Block Obama!"
One classmate did not join in as his parents voted for McCain.
The teachers were quite impressed that he was aware of the election and knew (sort of) Barack's name. (I didn't mention to her that he calls McCain "that other guy")
While watching the results tonight Zachary noticed that Obama won Illinois.
"Look," Zachary said, "he won Illinois. That's because he has home field advantage there."
Zachary and Joey's reaction upon hearing that Obama won the election
What an incredible, historic night!
