My little lobbyist

Belle: "Mommy, you know the voters?"
Me: "What voters?"
Belle: "You know Mommy, the VOTERS.  Like, the people who vote for the President."
Me: "Okay..."
Belle: "Well, I think the voters need to vote for no smoking."
Me: "What do you mean babe?"
Belle:  "Well, smoking is bad for you.  You can get sick and die.  Or you can make other people sick and they can die. Mr. M  taught us that.  So I think the voters need to vote that you can't smoke in America so then nobody will die of smoke."
Me:  "I see.  Good idea babe."
Belle:  "It should like totally be a law."

Mr. M is Belle's PE teacher.  He's big on teaching the kids about being healthy, saying no to drugs, and no to smoking.  The previous was a conversation we had earlier today.  About a week ago she had another "no smoking" conversation with me.  She told me that I need to tell her Uncle that he could die from smoking and that it's bad.  I told her he already knew.  She said, "Mommy, you're older than Uncle J right?"  I told her yes.  She replied, "Well then, he needs to listen to you because you know better and you're more grown up!" Watch out Uncle J, she's comin' for you!!

Yeah, my kids have been praying for Uncle J to stop smoking for quite some time. Told them not to give up, and keep praying! Go Belle!
