Ism of the Week

Well, tomorrow is the day that my sister gets married, and our entire family is bustling around in an effort to get ready for the big day.  I will be taking a few days off for the festivities and will be back on Monday with stories of the event.

But before I sign off...

"Mommy, why are Amy and Gabi (Gabriel) getting married?"

"Because they love each other."

"But you love me.  Are we getting married?"

"Nope.  That's for grown up men and women that want to spend the rest of their lives together."

"We aren't gonna be together?"

"Of course we will, Cael.  But someday you'll want to live in your own house and you'll find a nice lady that you want to live with."

"I'll have to pick out a new Mommy to live with?!?"

"Not a new Mommy, just a lady that you love and want to make a family with.  And then if you want, you can have kids and you can be the Daddy."

"But if I'm the Daddy, what will my Daddy be?"

"The Grandpa."

"Okay.  But I don't like that.  If I can't marry you, I think I'll marry Amy.  And then Gabi can marry you, and Daddy can just be the Grandpa.  Or he can marry Papa."

"Whatever you say, dude."  (Why even argue?) 

"Yes, I say.  Oh, I'm getting married!!  Can we have a dinosaur wedding?"

Congrats, Amy and Cael.  I hope you walk claw-in-claw together forever.  See you Monday!


  1. Just wanted you to know how thankful I am for your blog. Kids are wonderful and awful and you describe all so well. I know I will smile when I read your posts! Thank you.

  2. Thank you so much! Comments have been a little slow on the blog, so it's a huge compliment and pick-me-up to hear that you enjoy it so much. I really appreciate it!


Leave your own "ism". Cael and Graham double-dog dare you.
