Tonight, Zander was trying everything to get out of bed. Here’s our conversation:
Z: Mom? What does “vote” mean?
Me: It means we get to say who we want to be our leaders.
Z: What’s a leader?
Me: Someone who makes up the rules and helps run things.
Z: You get to pick leaders?
Me: Yep. Sometimes who we want to win does, and sometimes they don’t.
Z: Are you my leader?
Me: Well, kind of. Parents have lots of jobs.
Z: But if you’re our leader, why didn’t we get to pick if we wanted you or someone else?
