Pretty Girl and Marriage

We run a house full of testosterone - with occasional slivers of estrogen poisoning. So conversations about dream weddings and handsome princes are rare.

The boys understand the basics. Someday they will get married...after their mission, in a temple, with a girl, etc. etc.

That's enough for now.

Because girls are "girly" and they ride bikes too slow.

(except Mom...)

So when the subject of marriage was brought up last week, Pretty Girl's face went deathly pale. Not only will she marry someday, but she must marry....a boy??

A her brothers.

Oh, the horror!

She crossed her arms and declared her eternal spinsterhood. When I explained all the fun things that happen in marriage and families she relented and compromised with the only person she would ever think of spending the rest of her life with.


Favorite girl cousin, Lucy.

We're not going to push this topic for awhile.

Sorry pretty girl, Lucy is dead set on marrying Nelson, then Karver. However, she does say quite often that she doesn't want to live with my family anymore and she wants to live with pretty girl's family so they can play all day. :)

Haha, love it. Aiden used to tell me that he was going to marry either Jesus or Liv in the temple. Wasn't sure which was worse.
