On my way home from work I stopped off to get Sophie from soccer practice and then we went to get the rest of the kids from the sitter's house. When we got there, my kids were all crammed in the living room, watching the election coverage on tv. Even Willow, who loves to tell people that we voted for Rocko Bama. Only she says it Rocko!Bama! with a little jump in her voice.
I was so proud to see them sitting there watching history unfold. We don't have cable, so tonight they've been checking in online to see what's happening. Every time the points change, Lex yells out to me. Now he's at the computer, saying We're controlling the Senate, and nearly the House!
I've promised celebratory waffles (with Nutella gelato that SG made for us) for tomorrow morning. Here's to a brighter future.
