How did I explain ‘election’ to my kid?

Noelle wanted to buy something for her teachers! And since we told her Wednesday is ‘off day’, she suggested we get it on the day!

(During our dinner)

Me: We are not going anywhere on Wednesday because papa and mama have something very important to do!

Noelle: 😨😨😨

Me: It is Election Day. We are going for voting. 🙄🙄🙄

Noelle: 😨😨😨

Me: We need to go somewhere to tick something! 🙄🙄🙄 (ok, trying to explain)

Noelle: 😨😨😨😨

Me: We are going to choose someone to manage our country! 🙄🙄🙄 (still trying hard)

Noelle: 😨😨😨😨😨 What is country?

Me: 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ The place we live. Our country is Malaysia. When we go holiday on plane, we go another country (so far we haven’t been on plane for a domestic holiday).🙄🙄

Noelle: 😮😮🤔🤔

Me: 🤔🤔We are going to choose a LEADER for our country!

Noelle: (continue to eat)

‘Fortunately’ she did not interrogate me further! 😝

Happy voting in our coming 14th General Election on 9 May 2018!
