Nick has told me several times in the past year that he is going to marry Lyla. I have talked to him, explaining that people typically do not marry their sisters/brothers. He got a little upset with me and snapped, "I said I am going to marry Lyla--and that's the end of it!" Wonder where he got that line? Well, a few days later, Nick changed his mind.
"Mommy, I am not going to marry Lyla, I am going to marry you". I smiled, hugged him and told him that I would love to marry him, but that I was already married to Daddy.
"Well, I am gonna marry you too."
"No, Honey, Mommies don't marry their little boys. Maybe when you get older, you will find a nice girl to marry like Nyki or Quincey" (two neighbor girls of Grandma's that are Nick's age).
I could see the wheels turning in his head. Initially he was interested and agreed.
Then Nick said, "Well, fine. I guess I'll just marry Lyla then!"
Since then, Nick has stuck to his guns. He continues to go between me and Lyla. I guess no other girls compare...yet. :)
