Brookline Patch Column: Voting as Family Tradition

Last week, I asked friends online if Nomi and I should take Muffin and Squeaker to the polls with us on Election Day, and everyone came back with a resounding YES to the idea. So, in this week's The Brookline Parent column at Brookline Patch, I discuss how it went, but I also take the long view of continuing the family tradition of voting. So, if you'd like to find out both how I have a family connection to a former presidential candidate, and what happens when a preschooler tantrums on the way to the polls, check out Voting as Family Tradition.

(There's also some cute pictures of the kids holding their own campaign signs. What issue did they support? Click through to find out.)
