Lucas Loves the Democratic Process
This afternoon I took Lucas with me to vote. I think it is important for him to see people voting so he will want to do it too. So far Lucas is a BIG fan of voting. I think it is fair to say that most election workers are retirement age or older. Well older people (women especially) are a sucker for a young person voting especially when they bring their big blue eyed baby with them.
While waiting for my turn in the voting booth (which was a first there are only two there and rarely do I even see anyone else voting there) we sat down on a bench. Lucas walked right up to the table where the election workers were sitting and just started flirting, smiling, and playing peek-a-boo. All of the adults couldn't get enough of him and Lucas had those Grandmas eating out of the palm of his little baby hands.
