At nearly 4 years old, Knox knows all about local politics. He’s been very interested in learning about all of the signs around town for local elections, so, the other day, I did my best to explain what they mean (with my own limited knowledge). Here’s our conversation from today.
Knox: Mommy can you tell Lately about those signs? I think she wants to know who’s running in the race.
Me: Oh, you mean the election?
Knox: I will not call it an election. I will call it a race.
Me: Okay. Why don’t you tell her about it?
Knox: Well, I see a new sign, Mommy. I think someone else wants to be County Commissioner (yes, he pronounced it perfectly!). Who do you think will win? (said in a very sneaky, uh-oh type voice, as if he knew a secret)
Me: I don’t know who do you think will win.
Knox: (Point to sign) That guy. I think he’ll win. I really do.
