My son Aj and I were just hanging out chit chatting about whatever when he grabs a hold of my hand walking along the yard and says “I’m gonna marry you Mama”. Those were the sweetest words I probably have ever heard in my life!
I smiled and replied “well no you can’t marry your Mama, buddy. You may marry another girl some day though.”
Aj, looking all bothered by this fact and says “I don’t want to marry another girl Mama, I am not getting married ever then.”
I smiled, nearly giggling, and said “Oh but hun, I bet some day you will meet a lovely girl and get married!”
Aj is now looking all concerned as he says “But Mama will I still be in your family if I marry a different girl?”
At that point I had to explain that family is forever no matter what and that yes if he married another girl some day down the road that he would still be a part of my family and Mama would still love him very much.
