I think each of my boys has wanted to marry me at some point when they were between the ages of 3 and 5. Sometimes Joe worries me though. One day we were sitting at the kitchen table and he cocked his head to one side and looked at me very seriously and said, in a slow, low voice, MAARRRRYY MEEE. I've tried explaining to him that I'm already married but this does not detour him. A few days ago he came in to our room while Aaron and I were laying on the bed, chatting....he looked at me and said "MY BRIDE!" I was seriously getting a little weirded out by all this attention from my SON! He wants to kiss me and hug me all the time...which I do like...because I know all too soon he will not want to even be seen with me....let alone hug me...yuck! Yesterday I was in my room playing with Hannah when Joe came in and said "Hannah!! Do you want to marry me? If you marry me, you will be a princess" and Hannah replied with a huge smile on her face "YES!" and she looked down and said "I have on my dress!" Then they went to the living room and got married. I guess my boy is moving on...to someone closer to his own age...hopefully he will move on even further one day to someone who is not related!
