Can I Marry You?
After watching Cinderella, Girlie told me that now Cinderella is married and the king has a married daughter. I explained that Cinderella was the king's daughter in law. Then I had to explain what "in law" meant.
Girlie and Boyo both thought that over for a minute, and then Girlie asked if she could marry Daddy.
I smiled and said, "Sorry, kiddo, he's taken."
"Yeah," Boyo chimed in. "He's awready mawwied to Mommy."
"Okay," Girlie said, deep in thought. "Then can I marry Boyo? That way he will just be your son, not your son in law."
Boyo looked at his Daddy, very, very worried. "Daddy, can I marry you?" he asked.
"Sure," my husband said, trying not to laugh.
"Why don't you want to marry your sister?" I asked him.
"Because she bosses me," Boyo sighed.
"Buddy, I need to explain marriage to you," my husband told him.
