Aubrey: Mommy, I want to get married.
Me: Why do you want to get married, Aubrey?
Aubrey: Because I want to be loved.
Me: Well, OK, who will you marry?
Aubrey: Actually Mama, I am marrying you, of course.
Last night after we put Molly to bed, Aubrey and I were laying in the hammock outside with her snuggle blanket and a gray sky overhead. I started crying and had to hide that from her. But it was such a sweet moment. I did go on to explain that I was married to daddy but that I loved her very much and always would but she said she didn't mind if I was married to her and to daddy because she loved me. No need to argue over that, right?
sometimes (all the time) I just want to say STOP GROWING!! STOP!
but then I know, there are such good things to come.
what a sweet girl :-)
I actually said to Aubrey yesterday, "You are too tall" and she said, "No, mommy I am just the perfect size.
She is WAY smarter than I could ever be :)
I love those moments. Yesterday during "the conversation" I was making my kid a sandwich and she just looks at me and says, "Daddy, I love you so much. You are the best daddy ever."
THAT is why you want to be a parent!
I think I must be hormonal today...that teared me up!
Kids do say the smartest things - don't they?
That is so sweet! And what a wonderful example you (both) as parents are setting if her defining character of marriage is to just "be loved".
This one got me all teary eyed!
Aubrey is a beautiful and wise girl. But that's not a surprise! Look at who she wants to marry :)
Way too smart, cute, lovely, and wonderful!
After reading your post, I asked Claire last night if she wanted to get married and she said "Yes. To David. Or Leo. Or Henry. But not Logan...he's a mean mean boy".
At least she knows what she wants. :)
