Are you sick of the election yet?
Driving home from school, I flicked the radio off, having had enough of the constant argy-bargy between our political leaders.
With a big sigh, I wonder what will happen over the coming week and how it will impact our lives.
My 10-year-old picked up on my melancholy mood and asked what was wrong.
And so, the conversation began with me trying to explain the political landscape and along with him and his younger brother I tried to offer some insight into my dilemma.
They both quite like Clive Palmer for no other reason than he has the same surname as us.
Pauline Hanson, however, wears too much make-up and her clothes are very bright.
I try to suppress my laughter.
They know who the Prime Minister of Australia is, but they are not so sure about the other man, although he is on TV a lot says my eight-year-old.
When I inquired as to what I should be looking for when I need to vote for the prime minister they were very clear about what they thought the requirements should be.
Number one was kindness.
I looked across at these two young Australians sitting in the car beside me and felt quite moved that they truly believed to be the leader of our nation, you must be a kind person.
Next, they thought the PM should give money to charity to help people.
Their final thoughts on the matter were that this person needed to be able to fight for us if there was an enemy attack.
Trying to picture either of the major parties' leaders in armour with their swords drawn was rather fabulous
I loved all their points of reference.
Finally, I asked them who they would like to see become the next Prime Minister of Australia...
Their first choice is the deputy mayor of Launceston who I am 100 per cent confident is not standing for the PM's job.
Next choice - Malcolm Turnbull.
Oh dear ... there is still some work to be done. However, the most sensational part of our political conversation came when we drove past a sign for Jacqui Lambie.
They both started screaming at the top of their voices that I should vote for her because she is tough in the wild, thanks to her appearance on a reality TV show.
At the end of the day, it made me think - who of our political leaders shows genuine kindness but also has those warrior abilities to fight and protect.
The decision I make this coming Saturday will not be a decision for me, for what I can gain in the next three years, but who will make my children's future better and brighter.
