Wedding bells (ding-dong!)

As parents, we often visualize what our children's futures will be like. We daydream about where they'll live, what they'll do for a living, will they be happy, will they get married...

Jaysen informed me of his master plan last night:

J: "On Monday is school, on Tuesday is swimming, on Wednesday is playday, on Thursday is ice cream, on Friday is cupcakes, on Saturday is Mario, on Sunday is Peepa day- then we go to Charleviox!"

Me: "Yes, we're going to Charlevoix this summer for vacation. In July."

J: "I'm going to get married when I'm in Charlevoix."

Me: "Um, you're going to get married in Charlevoix?"

J: "Yep. I go to Charlevoix and I get married."

Me: "Oh? Who are you going to marry?"

J: "Just myself."

Me: "Usually when people get married, they marry another person."

J: "I get married, then I will like screaming babies."

Alrighty then!

Oh for the love...marriage and kids at the age of six?!? Is he trying to give me a stroke? I'm thinking that he thinks he'll be more tolerant of "screaming babies", aka his little brother, when he gets married and has a family of his own? After all, mom's and dad's don't get mad when their babies cry? (And why do I keep laughing about Sixteen Candles with Long Duck Dong "...married?!?")

So, my little guy is planning on getting married this summer, which leads to the really important question- does this mean I have to throw him a bachelor party?

When, oh when, will they legalize same self marriage? ;)

Too cute!

Marrying yourself sounds like a GREAT idea to me. Jaysen is smart to think of it. Just you another 10 years everyone will be doing it. Jaysen is on the cusp of a trend.

Adorable. What a sweetie. M also does not like crying babies or children.

A few times she has told other parents to make their child be quiet. Ugh.

Yes it does sound like we both have a ladies man on our hands. Add to that our oldest suddenly taking an interest in all things girl - and not subtly either! I thought I was lucky having boys - guess I am wrong yet again!

Married!! You may be able to skip the bachelor party, but you'll definitely have to get him a tux! Cute post about a cute little guy. I like his problem sovling skills.
