Mom, What's Voting??
We were out delivering bread today and drove past the fellowship which is where i am supposed to vote. I was kind of thinking out loud and i said 'oh i need to go vote' well of course from the back of the car comes the inevitable question.
Eddie: "mom what's voting??"
Me: "well, we get to choose who we want to be president of our country. Who would you choose to be the president Eddie?"
Eddie: "Joseph Smith"
I was trying really hard to keep a straight face.
Me: "Really?? I don't think that he can"
Eddie: "Is he dead??"
Me: "Yes, Who would be your second choice?"
Eddie: "President Hinkley"
Me: "Hmmmm I don't think that would work either, he's dead too"
We talked for a minute longer about what being dead means, going back to live with Heavenly Father. Then...
Eddie: "Mom, I think Heavenly father would make a good president"
Me: "Yep Eddie, i bet he would"
