Adorable Refresher

Adorable Refresher: noun. A certain thing a child does or says that is so cute, you remember right then and there how much you love them.

Every now and then, the idea of marriage floats into Monkey Son #1's mind. I'm not sure why that is, other than he knows that it's something people do when they grow up. One day, he said something like, "When I grow up, I'm going to marry you."

"You can't," I said. "I'm already married to Daddy."

I don't quite remember how he took that news, but it must not have been all that troubling, as recently he came to me again with another idea.

"When I grow up, can I find a girl like you and marry her?"

awww that is too sweet!!

I love those "adorable refreshers"!! Especially when they've been super cranky or naughty all day and you're wondering why in the world you ever wanted to be a mom in the first place and then all of a sudden that sweet little child does something that melts your heart and you forget your rotten day remember all over again why you love being called momma....
