Who would you vote for???

The other morning, when I was watching the presidential debate that we recorded from the night before (that I fell asleep to while trying to watch with my husband), Josh was with me. He was very interested in why I kept telling them to be quiet so I could hear.

"Who is that, mom?"

"That's Mitt Romney."

"What is he saying, mom?"

"He's telling us what he would do if he were President."

"What's a President?"

"That's the person we made the leader of our country."

"Is he a king?"

"No, we don't have a king. We have a president. God is our king." (Good line, huh? I got it from Little House on the Prairie.)

"How do we make him a President?"

"We vote. And I hope this guy gets all the votes. I hope he wins." (I know this might be sounding like a political commentary, but it's not, I promise...just keep reading.)

"Would you want me to win if I were talking?" (Talking = running for the nomination, but we don't worry about particulars.)

"Yes!! I would absolutely vote for you! What would you say if you were talking?"

(Oh, the wisdom of children...)

"I would say: I hope everyone is safe and that no one dies. I hope we are all happy. And I hope Jesus comes back soon."

Isn't that what it all boils down to?


  1. Maybe we should have Josh run for President. Simplify our government, it may be the only thing that fixes our problems.
