Mawwedge. It's what bwings us togevah.
Hannah's been trying to figure out this whole marriage thing.
A few weeks ago she started asking James if she could marry him. (I remember asking my Daddy if I could marry him when I was little too.)
A few days ago she asked if she could marry me.
(Background knowledge: A few weeks ago Kate broke up with her boyfriend John, after 2.5 years together.)
Here's the conversation:
H: Mom, I'm gonna marry you when I'm older.
Me: No Babe, you can't marry me. I'm already married. And you can't marry someone in your family. You have to pick someone else.
H: Then I'll marry Kate.
Me: No. You can't marry someone who is part of your family.
H: Hmmm. I guess I'll marry Mickey Mouse then. (smirking)
Me: You want to be married to a mouse?
H: No. I think I'll marry Handy Manny. (She knows that I think Manny is cute--we saw him live on stage and the actor was really good looking!)
M: Okay, but doesn't he already have Kelly? (the hardware store woman) How about someone human?
H: Umm. Okay.
M. How about ____? (One of her friends)
H. Hey! I know! I'll marry John!
(I think she's after his electric guitar.)
