Happy Election Day, Happy Moms Are Made in California (and Canada)

Go Vote!

Okay. You’re done? Were the lines long? Did you get a sticker?

I’m jealous. Because, um. I’m not actually a US Citizen. NOT YET anyway. I have to apply next year. It’s a long sad story why I have lived here 23 years and am still not a citizen. It involves shady immigration attorneys, lost applications, and 9/11. But, since my husband can vote, I have a voice in “half” of his vote.

Here’s a happy mom email. Now this REALLY made my day.

Dear Melissa:

I want you to know that after a long struggle, my 12 ½ year old daughter is actually “reading” for pleasure!  She bought your book “the Ashleys” at a school book fair and just finished it last night.  She couldn’t put it down!  I’ve been trying forever to get her off the computer and now she wants me to buy her more books from your collection.

Thank you so much!

From a happy mom in Barrie, Ontario, Canada!

Awesome!! Thanks Happy Mom!
