I Voted!

So all week long we have worked hard learning the campaign slogans, making posters to help our candidates out, and preparing speeches for the rally that was held today. Seems like a lot of work for little toddler politicos, but at the end of the day we were all excited when our candidate stood out from the crowd. Mommy helped me by bringing in lots of handouts for our cause (as did some of the other kiddos moms), and we were all pumped up on sugar when the afternoon rally rolled around yesterday.

Now the rest of you crazy grownups might be worrying about things like bonds, and financial markets, but that's not what concerns our generation. We're concerned with big governement, since too many authority figures reduces the everyday toddler's ability to wheedle additional cookies.  Other issues encountered during the rally were who governs sugar content, who regulates the ingredients that go into snacks that toddlers get to eat, and other issues like foreign relations (imported cookies are sooo yummy).  Cookie control is a frequently debated issue since some children have cookies at home and need to know the dangers of sneaking them when Mom and Dad aren't watching. Our campaign is based on awareness...toddlers should know the dangers of eating cookies without permission or being monitored by a responsible older sibling.  The concept of Free Trade also came up during debates, and we are willing to work on a non-partisan blue ribbon commission to encourage Free Trade of lunch room cookies but will expect other parties to step up and join us in this endeavor.

After our rally yesterday we gathered around and cast our votes, which are being tabulated as we speak. Check back soon to see if your favorite cookie was elected and will rule the school for the next four years.

We're Number 1, E-I-E-I-O.
