Sounds like many of you decided to bring your kids to voting, like us. :)

We went as a family after picking up the kids from school. My son asked me how I wanted to vote, and colored in the circles for me.

He had heard about Ballot Question 1 and told me to vote No, because he heard that it's "bad for patients."

He was disappointed that I didn't vote No. I tried to explain to him that you may see commercials by different advocacy groups, but the truth might be more complicated.

I read there are nurses for it and nurses against it, and it was confusing enough that I decided to leave the question blank.

Still, I felt happy my son was paying attention to what's going on in the world.

We then watching Election night coverage together.

My daughter saw the picture below and and exclaimed, "Wait, that's not right. Animals can't vote." I explained to her Donkey stands for Democrats and Elephant Republicans.

"Oh, so we want the Donkey to win." She got it. :) I explained similarly about the red vs. blue.

We watched the live coverage on CNN where they show map colored red or blue depending on the winners. My daughter noticed: "Wow, that's a lot of red!"

She went to bed happy that Ayanna Pressley won, who we were cheering on during the primary.

How did your election night go? Let me know. :)
