We received a wedding announcement in the mail a couple of days ago, with it
was a lovely picture of the bride and groom smiling back at us (with dry lips).
I thought it such a nice picture that I posted it on our family info board for all to see.
Later that day I was driving my 6 yr old to her friends house to play
when we proceeded to have this conversation:

B: "Are those people in the picture getting married?"

Me: "Yes, they are."

B: "Well, there are a couple of things weird about it."

Me: "What things?"

B: "Well, #1 they don't look alike. And #2 She looks like she's 16 yrs old."

I didn't know what to say.
I smiled at her and dropped her off at her friends house to play.
What was a 6 yr old doing with these kind of thoughts.
Do married people look alike in her world?
Do I look like my hubby?

I was grateful that she thought 16 was too young to get married but I want to know
What age is a good age to get married?
I'm going to ask her these questions when she gets home from school today.
I'll post her answers later

Do you have any questions for an all knowing 6 yr old?

Tell her that 35 is a good age to get married.

This is so hilarious!! I love what those 6-year-olds come up with. Those days are long gone at our house.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm wondering if 45 is a good age to get married? Will you ask her for me?

Can she pick her nose and ride her bike at the same time?

Marriage is a hard concept to explain to kids for some reason. My toddler is SO sad when I tell her we can't get married.

"But I WUB you, Mommy! I wub you so much!"

Yeah, well it's not all about "wub." Even for those poor 16 year olds.
