Sorry I've been a little remiss about posting. This past weekend was my daughter's birthday, so we had family come visit. I've also been ridiculously busy with other things. So, I'll do my best to post every day, but don't be surprised if I don't show up on occasion.
My daughter is now the ripe old age of twelve. I'm not sure if she's thinking about boys yet. But she's certainly thinking about weddings. She likes to watch the TV shows about brides picking out their dream dresses. Mermaid dresses are her style of choice.
So when we went to Lake Lanier islands this weekend, she immediately felt it would be the perfect place for a wedding. "Mom, I think I'll get married here. The view is so beautiful!"
I looked at that girl. "Married? You're looking at water and sailboats and thinking about weddings?"
She grinned. "Yeah."
"Girlfriend. You're going to be thinking a long time. Because you're not allowed to get married for at least another thirty years!"
My husband overheard the conversation. "No. Seventy years!"
I pity her first boyfriend. Actually, all of them!ReplyDelete
Ha! Yes. Hopefully she won't spring her wedding plans on them too soon!Delete
Seventy years?! Haha, such a typical dad response... XDReplyDelete
I guess he'll need a wheel chair if he has to "walk" her down the aisle in 70 years! (Do you think he'll live to 115?)Delete
Heh, medical advancements are happening all the time, so who knows! :PDelete
Going to be fun teenage years for youReplyDelete
yep, you first find the location and the dress and only then you search for a husband :)ReplyDelete
Better save your pennies hahaReplyDelete
Oh man, I don't even want to think about how much that's going to cost!Delete
Ha- 70 years! Let's see if she sticks to that-ReplyDelete
Ha! I don't think I'll be around to see it if she waits that long!Delete
Hehehe! I hope your daughter finds a very brave beau. :)ReplyDelete
Yes. My husband already has planned the horrible things he will inflict on her dates!Delete
Time to start saving! Hope your daughter had a good birthday.ReplyDelete
I hope her birthday was fun! She's already planning her wedding so I guess you won't have many surprises! And you'll have plenty of time to save up. DReplyDelete
Between that and college, I'm going to need a better-paying job!Delete
She'll probably have an amazing wedding, since she's got such a good start on the planning!ReplyDelete
I'm sure she will. I hope she's doing a little saving for it!Delete
Weddings are on a girl's mind earlier these days.ReplyDelete
Has she picked her bridemaids?
Ha! Wouldn't it be funny if she has?Delete
Heehee. Hopefully she'll marry someone nice and pliable who is happy to let her plan EVERYTHING...ReplyDelete
LOL! Yes. She has some pretty strong opinions!Delete
Happy birthday to your daughter!ReplyDelete
Maybe she's young enough that you can plants the seeds of "simple yet elegant." :)
Yes. I'll do my best to convince her. But she does have a mind of her own!Delete
LOL! My almost 13 yr old has been thinking about marriage since his first crush at age 10. Of course it doesn't help that he had girls chasing him and saying they wanted to marry him from the ripe old age of 4. Poor kid.ReplyDelete
Hope your daughter had a wonderful birthday!
Ha! It sounds like you have your hands full!Delete
Happy Birthday to your daughter.ReplyDelete
