They Grow Up So Fast

In the car leaving Chick Fil A drive though. Ethan is alseep.

Gabriel: Mom, you should have ordered this lemonade. Its delicious. You could have said, "I'd like two lemonades please. One for me and one for my son."

Me: Yeah, but I wanted a Coke. Next time.

G: I want to have a son.

Me: Really?

G: Yeah, actually I want to have 3 sons.

Me: Couldn't you throw in a girl for me? I'd like a granddaughter.

G: Ok, how about - 2 girls and one son.

Me: That's great! I hope whoever you marry is up for it.

G: Yeah, about that ....

Me: What?

G: Well, its kind of hard to explain.

Me: Come on, you can tell me anything.

G: Ok - I know who I want to marry.

Me: (waiting with baited breath to hear him say, 'mommy') Who is she?

G: Sasha

Me: Oh! Sasha! Yes, I like Sasha very much and her mom too. That's very good. Why do you want to marry Sasha?

G: Because she's 5 and she still looks good.

Me: (snorting Coke out of my nose)

G: See? I knew you would laugh!

Me: No, No. I'm laughing because its cute. Not laughing at you. Why do you think she will make a good wife?

G: Because she always gets green.

[Green is the color code for his kinder class that indicates they had a good day. Blue means they had one or more time outs. Yellow is go to the principal. Red is pretty much pick your child up from jail.]


I've always adored Sasha but she has lots of admirers - he has a lot of competition. Of course, he will blow them all out of the water when he's good and ready. Although, its ok if he marries Morgan too. She a sweetheart and super adorable. And I like her mom.

LOL. Clearly by 5 a lot of girls let themselves go...Good for Sasha. Your son is so sweet. Mine has informed me he will live at home forever, or maybe by the house next door where he will put together a time machine. No kids for that bachelor...
