To our surprise, the kid said she wanted to skip story time last night to watch a few minutes of the presidential debate with us. She ended up watching intently for almost an hour on our bed before she finally fell asleep.
Then this morning, when my wife went into her room, the first thing she wanted to talk about was the debate. When asked which one she thought she liked better, she said, "I liked them both about the same." Beat. "But I think Obama was better at choosing a vice president."
Wife: "You know the vice presidents are going to debate next week. I'm really looking forward to that."
Kid: "I'm really looking forward to that, too."
