Something Borrowed, Something Ewwwwww

Having four daughters, I'm likely to have four wedding$.

Therefore we often find our$elve$ having intere$ting conver$ations about marriage and wedding$ and the merit$ of having only mint$, nut$ and cake at a reception.

Since none of the girls are even interested in boys yet, most of these conversations usually are met with a "whatever, dad" or "ewwwww" or "why can't you just ask how school was like normal parents?"

My most recent talk was with Cassie.

"So, Cassie. That song on the radio mentioned how the girl's boyfriend asked her dad for permission to marry him. Do you think your future husband will ask ME?"


"Is that because you're going to find someone all rebellious or non-traditional."


"Are you going to elope?"


"Are you even going to get married?"


"Are you going to live at home forever with us?"


"Are you and your sisters going to share a cool apartment?"

"No." (Don't worry; a non-no answer is coming soon.)

"Are you going to go away to college and never coming home again?"


"Are you even going to move out?"


"Are you just going to wait for us to die so you can inherit our house?"

...slight pause...
"Do I get all your money, too?"

And you thought she didn't have any dreams.

Very bright girl you got there!

Of course, when she's my age she'll realize her parents are leaving her nothing, zip, zilch, nada.....zero!

Funny, except my kids are smart enough to know that getting 'all our money ' is no big thing. ;)
