I think I wanna marry you. And you. And you.

Kirsten: Next time when I grow up, I will marry daddy.

Me: Sweetie, um, I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Kirsten: I love daddy you know?

Me: I know! But daddy’s already married. To me.

Kirsten: No, not now. I mean when I’m a big girl like you. Then I will marry daddy.

Me: Well, by the time you turn 30, daddy will be 58, like Ah Gong. I seriously doubt you’ll want to marry him then.

Kirsten: Ok fine. Then I’ll marry kor kor.

Me: Actually, you can’t marry kor kor either. You’ll need to marry someone else.

Kirsten: But why? I love kor kor so much.

Me: Besides, if you marry kor kor, who’s going to marry baby Finn?

Kirsten: How about grandma? Baby Finn can marry grandma.

Me: What?? Mmm, I don’t think either of them would want that.

Kirsten: How about I marry baby Finn and kor kor. I will marry so many people.

Me: Wait, do you even know what getting married means?

Kirsten: Yes! I show you.

*grabs Truett and makes him twirl her around the room.

Kirsten: See, when I wear a pretty dress and do a twirly dance like this, it means I’m married.

*cue a whole minute of laughter

Me: Seriously, where are you learning this stuff from? Also, aren’t you far too young to be dreaming of a fairytale wedding?

not how you get married

    I can so identify with this.

    My 4.5 year old gal also said she wants to marry Daddy. She also told me who are the boys in her class that wants to marry her. Her latest obsession is that she wants to marry Mummy or her best gal friend in school. I told her, sweetie, same sex marriage not allowed….

    This is hilarious. Kirsten must have learned about the whole being married thing from Disney Classic Cartoons! Hahaha…

      YES! Definitely inspired by the Disney princesses. The twirling bit is definitely Cinderella, plus some of Belle & Ariel.
