Nine, and counting

I've been trying to explain to Mia that it is Mommy and Daddy's anniversary today. She says, "What's anniversary?" And I say, "Mommy and Daddy got married nine years ago today." She says, "Was I there?" And I say, "No, honey, you weren't born yet."

So she thinks for a minute, and says, "I got married six years ago to Carly. You weren't born yet." And I say, "Oh?"

She thinks for another minute and says, "What's married?" And I say, "Married is when you are a grown up and you love someone and you want to make them part of your family so you decide to put up with each other's crap for the rest of your natural lives.*" She says, "Can I get married too?" And I say, "Yes, if you want to, when you are a grown up." She says, "When I'm eight?" And I say, "A little older than eight."

She says, "Can I marry Daddy?" And I say, "No, babe. I already married Daddy, and I don't intend to let him go."

She says, "That's selfish. Is that selfish, Mommy?"

Indeed it is.

* I didn't really say that last bit, give me a little credit.
