Mawwige. Mawwige is what bwings us togevah today.

Small Fry: Uncle, are you going to mawrry Auntie?

Hubby:  I already married her.

Small Fry: Awre you gonna mawrry her again?

Hubby:  No...I don't need to.

Small Fry:  Yes!  We didn't get to see it!

Hubby:  I think we have a video somewhere.

Small Fry:  And then you can see her panties!  Why do you see her panties?

Hubby [trying not to guffaw]: Because that's what married people do.

This all happened while I was showering this morning.

And then, as we were getting ready to leave for church, this happened:

Large Fry: Why did you marry Auntie?

Hubby:  Because I love her.

Large Fry: What happens when you don't love her?

Hubby:  I'll always love her.

Large Fry:  But what about when you don't love her?

Hubby [light dawning]:  Are you worried that, because Daddy and Mommy stopped loving each other and got a divorce, we'll stop loving each other and get a divorce too?

Large nods.

Hubby:  That's not going to happen.  Your mommy and daddy didn't love each other as much as they should have to begin with.  They were only married thr...Mommy started saying she wanted a divorce before you were born, honey.  A long time.

Me:  And Uncle and I have been married a lot longer than your mommy and daddy were.  We love each other, and that's not going to stop.

Heartbreaking, isn't it?

But to cheer you up, I'll offer this little snippet of our lives, which just happened as I sat here typing.

It's naptime.  Medium is snuggling with Hubby, and he's got her trapped in his arms.

Hubby:  Say, "You're the greatest!"

Medium FryI'm da gweatest!

Smart kid.

  1. It's sad that munchkins so small have to worry about issues that are so large. That's one of the things that they went over in our PRIDE training (state-required pre-adoptive/pre-foster parent training). At least in your case, you are still family and the girls still have their grandparents. In our case, we are hoping to adopt children out of the state foster care system, with whom we share no blood relation. But many of the issues the children face are the same.


If you are rude, spiteful, or just plain mean, there will be a $10 charge just for putting up with you.

Please be nice.
