20 Feb Prince Charming
Since my little sister is getting married in March and my step-brother is getting married in May there has been a lot of talk about weddings around here.
Today in the car, out of the blue my youngest daughter sighs, “I want to get married.”
“You do?” I ask, “Well, you can get married when you grow up. Who do you want to marry?”
“Daddy” she replied dreamily.
“What else do you want to do when you grow up?” thinking this was a good time to sneak a peek into her head.
“Be a doctor” she says.
“Great,” I say, “And anything else?”
“Ride my big bike” she says and rolls her eyes as if she’s tired of me probing.
I summarize, “So, you want to marry Daddy, be a doctor and ride your big bike when you grow up.”
She sighs again and tilts her head against the car seat, “Daddy is sooooooo handsome.”
And although I wholeheartedly agree, I’m now convinced she’s seen one too many Princess movies.
