Kids' Choice


Yesterday at Kenzie's school, all of the kids got to go to the Forrest Library where the election voting will be held and they got to place their votes for who they think should be President. Kenzie just thought that was the coolest thing. It was between John McCain and "Rocko Bama," according to Kenzie. She said that John McCain won with 108 votes, so she was excited because that is who voted for. Kenzie was telling me that one of her friends voted for "Rocko Bama" and she said how another one of her friends said that she didn't like Obama because "he kills babies!" What the? It makes me wonder if the kids parents told her that or what. Maybe its just me, but I would not feel comfortable telling my kids that a Presidential nominee "kills babies!" How scary to them!!

My goodness they start them rather young. It is a good thing though then they realize the impact they can make on their own future (of course a long time from now.) I don't think I was told about it until after I turn 18 years old. It is so good for the kids but maybe some things they shouldn't know about such as the baby killers.
