The girls and I were on our way this morning to the zoo. While in the car, I turned on the car and was psyched to hear In Between Days by the Cure.
"Hey Baby Girl, this song was one of Mommy's and Daddy's favorite songs when we were younger."
"When you were babies?" Baby Girl asked as she danced in her booster seat.
"Um, no. We didn't know each other when we were babies. We liked this song when we were older."
"Were you getting married when you liked this song?"
"What do you know about getting married?" I asked, surprised to hear her use this term.
"Weeeellllll, when you were a princess and Daddy was a King, did you get married?"
"Yeah, I guess."
"Ohh. Well, maybe when I get bigger and am a grown-up princess and Peaches becomes a King, we will get married."
"Um, I don't think so sweetie. You aren't going to want to marry your sister. Someday you will meet someone you love and maybe you'll get married."
"Awww. Wait, I KNOW...I'll marry Eli!!!"
"Um, sorry Honey. You can't marry your cousin either."
"Awww pickles, Mom," she said with a scowl and her arms folded in front of her. "I wanna marry Eli."
"Uhhh--hey lookie, Baby Girl--we're at the zoo!"
"Are we going to see camels? Are they married?"
