Sean's Plans

Sean was sitting at the dining room table today painting with water colors. I was in the kitchen starting dinner. So, we were talking back and forth and I am not exactly sure how the following conversation started, but it sure was funny.

Sean - When I am a Dad, I get to tell my kids what to do!
Me - Yes, you will.
Sean - But I have to get bigger first.
Me - Yes, and find a wife. Who will you marry?
Sean - Eeeew! Yuck! I don't want a wife!
Me - Well, only girls can have babies.
Sean - Yea, I know.
Me - Where do you want to live?
Sean - Here.
Me - So, you are going to get bigger and have a baby and no wife and live here.
Sean - Um, this is my house.
Me - Yes, but when you grow up you will get your own house.
Sean - No, I don't want to. I want to live here with you.
Me - You are a nice boy. What if you marry Grace or Alexis or Julia?
Sean - No-o-o-o-o-o-o!
Me - What about Zach or Noah or Luke?
Sean - Mom, they are boys!
Me - I was just kidding. But you need a wife to be a Dad.
Sean - Well, can't you just have another baby and give it to me?

I had no answer for this. So, if I have it right, he is never getting married, he will live home forever and he wants to be a Dad to my baby! Yikes! Good thing plans can easily be changed and modified when one is five years old!


This is Sean a bit later, he begged and begged to stay up until 9:00 instead of going to bed at 8:00. I really have to get them back on a schedule with school starting in a little over a week! I told his this is the last night to stay up late. These pictures were taken at about 8:20, he tried!

Poor soul! He really did try. Reminds me of the first time my boychild tried to stay up to midnight - swore he could do it - he conked out about 11:45 [we were visiting relatives and everyone had been up very late. the girls got sent upstairs and the adults continued to visit in the dining room whilst boychild was supposed to be going to sleep on the couch in the livingroom]

All of your kids are such cuties!

Aw!! My boy keeps saying he wants to marry his little sister. When she objects to this, his feelings are genuinely hurt. I find this whole thing sweet and deeply deeply disturbing at the very same time.

I did have to point out that as per my situation, you don't so much need a wife to have kids. :)

Robynanne -

You are right, he doesn't need a wife. But to a five year old, this is about as far as I can take it. Boys don't have babies and girls do is about all he understands! And I would prefer he had a wife before he had a baby - it doesn't matter to me how they become parents - pregnancy, adoption, surrogacy - all that matters is that I am not having it for him! lol Thanks for your comment!

I don't think it will take long to get him into a routine for school. He looks so sweet! here from ICLW

That's too funny!

My daughter wants to marry her daddy, not realizing how taboo that is! She's 4.
