Any stay-at-home mom will tell you that one thing they long for a the end of the day is a conversation with an adult. Ya know, something a tad bit more in depth than how yellow and blue make green, or about Ken and Barbie getting married for the 100th time. Wellllllll, today I didn't quite have the luxury of spending time with another adult, but here was the conversation I had with Emma as we were in the car coming home from town. Out of nowhere in the back seat, my 5 year old asks;
"Mommy, can you take me pass your bank?"
Me - No, I'm actually not sure where it is.
Emma - You don't know where it is?!?!
Me - Well, your Dad just switched to a new one and he always does the banking, so I really don't know where it is yet.
Emma - WHAT?!?!?! You and Daddy share you money??????!!!????
(trying not to laugh) - Well, of course! That's what married people do.
(long pause of silence from the back seat) - Mom, I wonder who I'm going to marry.
Me - Your prince of course.
Emma - How old do I have to be to get married? 16...or 100?
Me - Somewhere in between there.
Emma - Oh. (another long pause) Mom, I don't think I want to get married anymore.
Me - Why?
Emma - Because I'm not sure I'll eat the cake the right way and everyone will be looking at us.
This girl cracks me up. So way better than any adult conversation I could have ever wished for...well today that is. ;)
