The Dictator
by Karla ° Tuesday, October 14, 2008
We began our day at the local Nuclear Power park, because where else can one ponder the state of the economy, the crumbling stock market and the Canadian Election than directly next to a mammoth-sized nuclear reactor?

Oh! The irony.

I thought a fun day at the park would be a good time to explain to Nate about the importance of exercising our right to vote, and how today is the Canadian Federal Election and that the Liberal sign on our front lawn that he loves to push and hit and poke is the Government party I'm voting for.

And then I took him to our local voting station, and he totally had the mother of all tantrums and threw himself on the floor after I cast my ballot and told him that we were done colouring and had to leave the pencil for the next person to vote.

Apparently, my toddler favours a dictatorship. But only if he can wear his Mommy's fuzzy red slippers.

My little one loves to put on my slippers and shoes too ~ he will even try on my high heels! (he can walk in these better than i can) :D
I really like Nate's shorter hair ~ it suits him.

What? Your Toddler thrown tantrums?




They could take over the world if they only knew how to go about it.

Good luck with your election. I want to learn about how the parliamentary system works. It's one of those things we never learned in school, but it seems kind of important if I want to be at least semi informed about the world.

Man, I was thinking that kid had big feet!

So, you guys really have to pack on that many pieces of clothes to go outside already? Wow! I wore jeans today, but it was mostly b/c I really, REALLY need to shave my legs! I was hot, too, really hot.
