Our daughter, Alex, is the oldest kiddo in our immediate circle of friends. See previous post for a photo of the whole motley crew. Being the oldest girl in a crew of little boys makes Alex quite the hottie. The boys LOVE it when she bosses them around and breaks up their fights. Her brother, on the other hand, likes to backhand her for the same reasons.
Last night, both Simeon and Liam, in their awesomely brave preschool voices, informed Alex separately that they were going to marry her.
Alex's version of the story goes like this:
Sim - "Alex, I'm going to marry you."
Alex - "What? What do you mean?"
Sim - "We'll get married."
Alex - "Oh....cool."
Sim - (Hands her a Hot Wheels car.)
Liam - "Alex, can I marry you?"
Alex (surprised at being offered marriage twice in one night) "You, too? Wow."
Liam (silent, apparently waiting for an answer).
ALex - "Um, cool."
Liam - "OK, bye!"
Boys, you're gonna have to fight it out. Unfortunately, Alex things she's going to marry the Jonas Bothers (well, at least one of them) right now.
How, oh how, are we going to resolve this dilemma?
