Conversation on the ride home from swim practice:
Number 4: Mom, we had an election last week.
Me: Oh, really?
Number 4: Yeah, we could vote for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, or we could check off “other” and write in a name.
Me: Do you want to tell me who you voted for?
Number 4: I didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.
Me: You didn’t?
Number 4: But I didn’t vote for Donald Trump, either. I picked other.
Me: Did you write in a name, or did you just leave it blank?
Number 4: I wrote in a name.
Me: Whose name did you write in?
Number 4: I wrote in the only person I knew who would make a great president. I wrote in…

Number 4 is now my favorite child.
And who knows. Maybe one day.
At least all my skeletons are out of the closet 🙂
