I explained to my 4-year-old that I have to watch a debate and can’t be disturbed.
She had a lot of questions, so I told her that there’s an election coming up. I explained what an election is. I said we will be voting for the president and whoever gets the most votes wins. I also said that there are two people who want to be president. They are both very nice people but we have to decide which one is a little better.
“What are their names?” she asked.
“Donald and Joe,” I said.
“Vote for Joe, Mommy,” she said. “You are voting for Joe, right?”
And thus it begins.
