Today our country elects its 45th president, and while “the media” has bombarded us with angles and ads, we thought we’d get a fresh perspective and find out what — if anything— kids were saying about the candidates and the presidency.

Once we dug in, a couple things became clear— the kiddos are picking up much more than we expected. They’re processing what it all means through the world as they understand it. This made for some sweet, hilarious, and sometimes shockingly insightful quotes and conversations.

We’ve collected some of our favorites here (as always, shared with permission of the parents). LittleHoots is an app that helps parents around the world keep memories with their children.

Hm. This isn't what a 4 year old would say... it's what a 4 yr old would REPEAT, from what her parents say.
