marriage. . .when you're 5. . .

. . .so tonight when ryan is going through his hugging my ever-expanding belly routine, he says, "mom, when i grow up i'm going to marry owen (the to-be baby's to-be name)".

me: "uhm ry - you can't marry owen."

him: "mom! (totally exasperated here) boys can marry boys you know."

me: "NOT if they are your brother" "you cannot marry someone in your family"

him: "oh. . .then I'm going to marry sophia"

and off he went to do something. . .i thought this was funny - i bet i never thought about same-sex marriage until i was well over 30. . .let alone tell my mom she was in the dark ages not knowing it could be done. . .at 5!!!

we do know a few families with 2 moms. . .no 2 dads as of yet. . .he seems accepting of the situation and that makes me feel proud as his mom.

as for the marriage to sophia - if it ever happens, thinking back to him talking about it when he was 5 will be a scream. i think i need to do a LO. . .just in case. . .

catch you soon -
