What goes on in our family's house every day is what a lot of folks would call, well, boring.

I get up, I take the kids to school. At night, we try to get the kids to bed on time and do the laundry. I take out the trash. We have coffee in the morning. We love our family just as much as anyone else -- it's just that there are two moms in our house.

Our twin boy and girl are 3 years old -- all they know is, "Okay. I have two parents who love me very much. One's funnier than the other one." We're teaching them to treat people with respect and dignity.

It means the world to us to know that President Obama is teaching his girls the same things -- that he believes his family and mine are more alike than different.

Watch this video to see why this election couldn't be more important to all our families, then say you'll come out and vote for President Obama.

Come out and vote

I never thought I'd hear a president say they support marriage equality, but President Obama did.

President Obama has already done so much to benefit the LGBT community, and this election will determine whether we can hold on to that progress -- and build on it.

If Mitt Romney is elected, we're going back. I mean back to an outdated philosophy on equality. This is a guy who wants to amend the Constitution to say that marriage is only between a man and a woman, and even opposed the end of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," saying it would be a "social experiment." He wants to stop our progress, and, as a gay woman, that terrifies me.

We have a president who supports us -- now we have to show up and support him.

So please say you'll vote:
