That's What He Said: on love and marriage

"Hey Elijah, do you have a girlfriend in your PreK class?
"Um... no. [pause several beats. then face lights up] But I do have a Grandma Debby!"

My sweet boy just adores his Grandma. He asked me recently if I'll marry him when he grows up. I had to turn him down and explain I'm already married to Daddy. I watched his brow furrow and he became silent for a moment. Then he looked slightly less disappointed and replied "Well that's ok. I'll just marry Grandma Debby in stead."
