A Big Thing to Think
(conversation between myself and my then four year old son Isaiah. I had to share this one)
Isaiah: Mommy, I've been thinking something big.
Me: Yeah? What's that?
Isaiah: I'm thinkin about who to marry.
Me: Oh. (smiling)Well, that is a big thing to think about.
Isaiah: The problem is Mommy, that I don't know that many girls.
Me: I see. Hmmmm...
Isaiah: And the other problem is that the girl I know that I like got married already.
Me: (trying to suppress a laugh and wondering what he thinks the word 'married' means since I assume he is talking about a girl in his class) Oh, that is sad. Is she a girl in your class?
Isaiah: No. Don't be silly. The girl I like is a big girl.
Me: A big girl? (now totally confused and a tad worried)
Isaiah: Yeah. You know her.
Me: I do?
Isaiah: uh huh.
Me: And you really like her?
Isaiah: I love her.
Me: okay, I give up. Who is it?
Isaiah: Mommy! It's you! But you already married Daddy! (folds his arms and pouts)
Me: (trying not to giggle or rush over and hug him just yet since he is being so serious.)
Oh, well yes. I love you too. But I did marry Daddy.
Isaiah: I know (sighs) I'll have to find someone just as nice as you.
I did hug him at that point. What a sweetie. Just like his father :)
What about you? What big things are you thinking? :)
