Ronan was in our green silk Zolo. And the whole time we were in the booth, he was shrieking, "bye-bye! bye-bye!" (which I hope means, "bye-bye, Bush," but that's another thread).

Did you use a sling to help you vote?

Fia did! Our poll was just down the street so dh and I walked down with her in our Sachi carrier. She slept the whole time. I was looking forward to being an advertisement for babywearing, but there weren't that many people there at 10:00 this morning

Quinn voted (after cracking up over the word democracy) in our KKAFP, everyone's new favorite! Here's hoping that he learns about change from this election.

LOL, glad I'm not the only one, DS woke up when we got to the polling place, then we voted, him in his sling that we got from 1000 villages, and after we left he fell right back to sleep

I love my slings!

Baby Lillian and I waited in line for over an hour to vote in Ohio. (and that was the shortest waiting time I've heard of yet, in our state!) She slept for the first half, cooed and smiled at people for the second and fussed as soon as we got in the voting booth--must have been closterphobic. Everyone loved our purple sling.

Eli *should* have been in a sling when we voted. Instead he was tearing around the polling place like a crazy liberal.

Marlena was in her OTSBH, Leopard print, ever so fashionable. She even nursed while mama finished voting.

Yeah, I heard some places in LA were 2 hours. Not even in NYC do places take 2 hours! Good news, no lines, no crowds, bad news we went to the wrong voting places the first time. Don't get me started.

T earlier today we went into the drug store. I decided NOT to carry her in the sling, just in-arms. As I was trying to talk my son OUT of the store (and away from the gumball machine, she fell backwards... THANK Goodness my grip on her legs (she was sitting on my left arm) was good and strong. I hope her legs are OK.

Next time, I'm wearing her in the sling!

10 - boy
5.5 - girl

Morgan was sleeping in the front in her Moby wrap and Quinlon was eating french fries and drinking apple juice on my back in the Kozy. There was NO WAY I was hauling out a huge double stroller and then try to fit it in the tiny voting building. (Which was good becase that was what 2 other mamas did and there wasn't room. When I got to the front the lady said" One on front & one on back! Gee your hands are full!" and I said "No. My HANDS are free! "

Love and Laughter,
Amy

You all inspired me! I was sitting here so down and found this thread and knew I had to go vote. I have been trying all day.
I had given up hope this crazy day that I would vote! One of my best friends called me as I was leaving. She was at the hospital having a miscarraige. I went to get her two kids so her DH could be with her. I came home and her baby was so freaked out I couldn't leave her. I nursed her. (A whole other story!) Once she settled down my DH said I had to go but the babe wouldn't let me out of her sight so I left him with the rest of the kids while I took her little babe to the polls in my ergo. Now we are watching the news and the babes are fighting over the boobs! Please send all good thoughts for my friend and her babe tonight and my boobs! Looks like Kerry is losing. :

Edited to say I am proud i votedand was able to care for a very special babe in need. It was my first time voting and I got lots of smiles with my sweet Brazillian babe snuggling my back.

Mommy to Ryah 12, Reanna 11, Parker 6 and Cooper 3 months

We voted in my Rev. Jan ring sling that I jus tgot a few days ago. I got to walk there too. I was already for a big line hoping to strike up a conversation about babywearing but no long line. I wish I had done what sagepixie Amy did with one on the front and back because my 2.5 yr kept going into others voting booths! I couldn't wait to get out of there, hopefully I filled it out right! LOL
