will moments

ok so just a few quick thoughts before bed!

today was a voting day for us, so i decided to take will with me so he could experience it. trying to explain voting to a two year old was interesting-i basically told him that we lived in a country, that a country was like a family and that we were going to say who we wanted to be in charge.
that the person in charge was the president-then i made him say president. when we pulled up he said-this where vote be? when it was my turn to vote i picked him up and showed him what i was doing, i filled in my little arrow, and said see that was my vote. He said-ok, my turn! bless his little patriotic heart! (no he didn't get to vote) he got a sticker that says i voted and he has told everyone that he voted.

after voting we went to the grocery store, in the produce section i said ok lets get the baby carrots we like. he got a very concerned look on his face and said "mom i need the big boy carrots!" i was laughing out loud at that one.

oh and potty training has not been going well but yesterday he did poopies on the potty!!! his daddy has been promising him a big truck if he did it, so last night we went out the the local huge toy store and picked one out, he is sleeping with it as i write this. no poopies on the potty today though...one day at a time right?

ok time for bed and ice cream!

We voted this week too, for our provincial government. It is great to take the kids with you and let them experience the whole thing. But mine tend to be a bit loud and tell everyone who we voted for:)
Good luck on the potty training!
