The enforcers

Audrey came home from school earlier this week with an interesting story.

"Mommy, there's this boy, in my class, his name is Adrian, and he says he likes me, and when we grow up, I'm going to marry him."

I had to laugh.  She sounded a little disgusted.  "Did he ask you, or did he just say he was going to marry you?"

"He didn't ask.  He just says he's going to marry me."

Obviously, this child has no idea what he's getting himself into.  "Does he know about your brothers?  And your Dad?"  I asked her.


When we picked up the boys, she shared her story with them.  They were not impressed.  Nolan said he wouldn't allow it without meeting him, and Ben was just planning something with a staff.  Or was it a club?

I called Mr W.  "Audrey got a marriage proposal today,"  I said.

He laughed, but he couldn't talk (he was at work).   Later, I saw Audrey sitting on his lap, telling him about it.  "Eh, no big deal," he told her.  "Just tell him no."

"Can Ben come to my class to do it?"

And so it begins.

Cute...I would have asked how big a diamond he planned on giving her before I poo poo'd the whole idea.   :)

Perhaps Audrey could bring her Dad to school for SHOW AND TELL.  Nothing like a father with a weapon to keep the suitors in their place.

Princess is already stressed about the new school this year and leaving her boyfriend.  You know, the one she's been in love with since 1st grade.  And, yes, sadly it's been a mutual thing.  It's wrong I tell you - just wrong!
