First timer and conversations with T.

I think I must be one of the very few people out there that gets so excited about voting.  I voted for the very first time last year and today we had a special election.  I know, give me time and I too will be jaded.

Today was T's first time to vote.  In Oregon our ballots are mailed to our homes and then we fill in the little circles and take it into voting stations and drop it into the box.  Voting increased when Oregon went to this format.

Anyway I digress... back to T and his first time voting.

This is how the conversation went:

Me:  I really think you should take your ballot down so that I can get a picture of you voting for the first time.

T:  Mom, seriously?

Me:  I think it would be great to add to your album of all your first's.  Don't you?

T:  So you want to take a picture of all my first's?

Me:  Yes

T:  Mom, ALL my first's?

Me:  Yes, what's your problem... oh, okay, wait, what?  Give your ballot to Bear he is going to the library.

Creating memories with T just got a whole lot weirder.


  1. Yes, we're getting to the point in Motherhood that we're just better off not knowing about some of those firsts. :D

  2. lol, this made me snort out loud...love it ;)

  3. LOL. You may not always be there for all the first's, but mothers have this intuitive clairvoyance which lets them think "oh boy... he just had ***"

  4. Alrighty then. Maybe not ALL firsts...

  5. what other firsts are you thinking about? ;p
