Periodically, Little Red talks about his upcoming marriage to Kyra. Talk had been quiet for a while, but recently he’s brought up the topic again. Yesterday in the car he asked despondantly, “Mummy, but who will I marry?”
I explained that when he grew up he could choose whom he would marry, that it was all up to him. It didn’t take him long to reply “I would like to marry Kyra.” So I explained that when he and Kyra were all grown up if they wanted to, they could get married.
Not three hours later Kyra was over and Little Red asked, “Kyra, do you want to get married to me?” (Of course she answered yes.) I had a great time telling Jen when she came to pick up the kids that her four year old daughter has had her first marriage proposal!
