Voting in the Evening - With Kids!

‎I'd like to thank everyone who offered their opinion on whether or not to bring Muffin and Squeaker to the polls today. After much discussion, gnomi and I decided not to vote first thing in the morning, as we've done for almost every election we've voted in since we've been married. Instead, we're voting after work, and we're taking the girls with us so they can one day recall their first presidential election.

The deciding factor was probably this PSA on voting from one of our town selectmen, Jesse Mermell.

Also, this gives me a topic for this week's The Brookline Parent column.
