I voted or the time I had to pull ol' Mama Bear outta my back pocket...

I voted.
Did you?
If you know me at all you know how hard of a time I have getting up in the morning.
If you don't just ask my Husby...
So I managed to get up and out of the house before 6AM with a three month old in toe.
I pulled into the lot, got Miss P all bundled up in her car seat/stroller, and I was off to vote.
There was a tiny line that crept outside of the building where I was voting but nothing, too crazy.
Was it cold?
Was my child cold?
She was wrapped up tighter than a girdle of a Baptist minister's daughter.
She wasn't cold and I know that because she was laughing, NOT CRYING.
Which leads me to the point where I absolutely lost my shit.
We finally got inside and even through the crowd of people I heard a couple and a group of what I assumed to be the couples friends whispering.
They basically said that they couldn't believe somebody would bring their baby while they are trying to vote.
Are you kidding me?
I could see if she was in the midst of an absolute meltdown.
She wasn't.
She was absolutely perfect.
And NO I am not just saying that because she is MY child.
She really was!
So I did what any normal Mama would do.
I whipped that Mama Bear right out of my pocket, turned around, gave the redeyedstare side eye, and said, "At least I am voting! {pause} ...and let me guess your voting for Obama?"
Regardless of who they were voting for I left them speechless and none of them made a peep for the remainder of the time that we stood in line.
I think that they were just jealous that I had a deliciously adorable child and I looked better than their frumpy asses did standing in line.
Which brings me to my link up with the adorable Laura and Stephanie!!!!
