We also got to watch the election returns, and were grateful to be able to share the moment with friends. In truth we are still struggling in how to talk about this with the kids, because they don't understand someone who has sounded so mean as they have watched the debates could be elected, their primary value for someone who they would elect president was someone who was "nice and kind" and we are focusing on talking about how important it is to stand with those who may be bullied, how to live with respect to their values. Spending time with friends and getting out of town has let us reset a bit, a ridiculous amount of chocolate didn't hurt much either.
