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.
Read part I here.
It was a year ago almost to the day when Philosopher Child (then having the name of Monkey Son #1) came to me and told me that he wanted to marry me, and then, realizing that I was spoken for, said he wanted to find someone like me to marry.
First off, young girls of the world--cringe! Whichever of you my son marries, he will be comparing you to me! *Insert evil laugh here.* OK, but seriously, I'd probably be an OK mother-in-law. But I digress.
Recently Philosopher Child came to me and said, "I have two girlfriends. But I don't know which of them I'm going to marry."
I looked at my 5-year-old with the most joyful disbelief. I grabbed his hand, and dragged him down the hall to Husband. I laughingly told Philosopher Child to repeat what he just said. And he did. Husband and I thought it was a hoot!
And the real kicker? I doesn't know either of the girls' names.
