MiniWza was voting this morning!
She actually did do the X on one of each of the ballot papers MsWza and I did. We had no choice. There were actual tears on the way to the polling station when we said she’s too young for the real thing.
Watched this in advance, obviously.
In mentioning it, and the very basics involved, we noted that different ‘teams’ have different colours and logos. She decided that she wants the one with the red rose to win. I said fair enough, but don’t get your hopes up, it’s mostly yellow/black ribbon and green/white sunflower territory round here. Just stay away from those blue/white trees.
Didn’t mention party names cos, goodness me, all of the above is plenty for now for a four year old. She was chatting on and on about it on the walk to nursery, though, asking why is it a cross in the box, and why the one with the most votes is the winner, etc. And then repeated the bit about not wanting the trees to win. Kids are so easily indoctrinated!
She also asked about party logos in Russia (one of her favourite shows, Masha and the Bear is based in Siberia). Did a Google image search. There was a bear, the hammer and sickle, a star, and … a few less savory ones (including a grenade and a s-----ka).
On a similar note, but less divisive and more inclusive, she seems to be a fan of this book we recently got from the Library.
