Love

Joey: "Mom, will you marry me?"

Me: "I can't marry you because I'm your mommy, hon. And I'm already married to daddy. Someday you will find a smart, lovely, sweet, funny, beautiful girl to marry."

Joey: "I don't want to marry anyone else. I want to marry you!"

Tommy: "I want to marry you too, mom!"

Todd: "I'm married to mommy! You boys will find your own special girl to marry someday."

Joey and Tommy: "I don't want to! I want to marry mommy!"

Me: "Aww. You boys are so sweet to your mumma."

Joey: "Fine! Forget it! I don't wanna get married then."

Tommy: "Me either!"

Me: "Why not?"

Joey: "I dunno."

Me: "Well, you don't have to worry about that for a long time."

Joey: "No. I don't want to! I want to live with you forever and ever."

Tommy: "Me too!"

Me: "You might change your mind when you get older sweetie."

Joey: "No! I don't want to get married! I want to stay here with you!"

Tommy: "Me too!"

Me: "Okay. You don't have to get married if you don't want to."

Joey: "Thanks, mumma."

Me: "Sure hon."

Joey: "I love you, mum."

Tommy: "I love you, mumma."

Me: "I love you too, you silly boys."

So sweet. Oh what I would give to keep my kids that in love with me. It fades too quickly.

very sweet!

Lisa said...

"No boys. Two of you are lucky enough to get to marry one of Lisa over at Life with Our Little Ladies daughters. There real names aren't Goosey & Lulu, so don't be scared - but you will make such beautiful children together"!

Seriously though - can't get much sweeter!

That is about as sweet as it gets! Lucky you blogged this. You can look back on it when they hit their teenage years :) lol

Stephanie said...

Okay, I really need a little boy. This just breaks my heart it is so sweet! What a lucky momma you are!

Krystyn said...

That is just too sweet. Maybe I want this to be a boy now?! But in a couple years, I don't know?

Bryan said...

awwwwwww

lime said...

you know, after watching the way my girls worshipped their daddy like this when they were so small it was a bit of a treat to have a boy and be on the receiving end of such adoration. it's awfully cute.

Mom24 said...

My boys have gone through this too. So sweet. All of my kids also went through a stage where they didn't want to go to college because they didn't want to live away from home. My oldest got over that, I'm sure they all will. lol.

Your boys are so cute.

Dawn said...

That's the best! What sweet boys you have!

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Priceless!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

What sweet moments! I do miss that stage! My nine year old however is planning to live with us for the rest of his life, so that will be fun.
Little boy love for mommy is priceless.

maggies mind said...

Oh my gosh, you have the sweetest little boys! So cute.

Karen said...

So sweet! Too bad they won't be saying that when they're 20, huh?

Immoral Matriarch said...

That is waayyy too sweet. I think they'd melt into syrupy goodness if you applied too much direct heat.

Kelly said...

It must make you feel so good to have all of your favorite males in your life fighting over you. How sweet. I'd be ok with my boys living at home with me forever.

MamaGeek said...

Oh yeah, that is truly sweet! When I was young I'd swear I was going to marry my Dad. Ha.

Jewelgirl said...

Yep little girls want to marry Dad,
and little boys want to marry Mom!
This is toooo cute!

Cara said...

Too cute. I have already made Francesco agree to never get married and stay with his Momma forever, now only if a 2 year old could put that in writing :)

Catwoman said...

That is way too much sweetness!!!! See? You would be ok with a fourth boy! Just another one to love you like crazy! :)

Tam said...

Ah tooo sweet! OOO yeah the touchy subject...being a MOM of Two boys...totally understand that POST one hundred percent!

Jaysi said...

My son and I had this same conversation not to long ago. Doesn't it just make your heart giggle a little. It is so unbelievably sweet!!!

wright said...

Melt your heart!

Elaine A. said...

So sweet.

I just pray that the women they do find will have all those qualities you mentioned! : ) I wish this for my boys too...

Mommy of 3 said...

YOU'RE SO LUCKY. your boys are so affectionate.

imbeingheldhostage said...

oh, see? These are the quality moments. I have something for your bling shelf. :-)

Danielle said...

So super cute!!! With conversations like that going on... you definitely wouldn't be disappionted if you did end up having another son.. Then all four would want to marry you!!! But if you did have a girl than at least one of your kids would want to marry daddy!!! Good luck! Things always have a way of working themselves out!!!

Molly's Mom said...

Definitely show them the transcripts of this when they're teenagers! How sweet!

Kristen said...

Oh that is adorable!!

Remind them of this years from now, when they are dying to go to college! :)

Karen Deborah said...

That's so sweet, give em about 10 years.

Rachel said...

Adorable!!

My daughter is marrying my husband and you can't tell her any different :-)

Cyndi said...

Aw. I have conversations like that with my daughter. She wants to marry her dad and when I tell her she can't she wants to know who she can marry and frets because she doesn't know who she is going to marry yet. She also thinks once she is a mommy she can sleep in bed with mommy and daddy. Uh, no. It sure doesn't work that way!

Robyn said...

Those boys. Be careful they will be 30 and still living at home;)

beth said...

So sweet. My daughter is the same way with my husband.

She makes him dress up for "marrying" at least once a week.

Sandy C. said...

Oh. So. Sweet.

Don't you wish these moments could last forever :)

Brittany said...

Can I marry you too??? lol ;) ha ha ha.

Seriously, toooo cute!!! I love the mother/son bond. It's so special! I want my boys to want to marry me. I might have to break their hearts, though. sigh.

Fire Hunt said...

Boys will be boys how cute.

Nap Warden said...

That is just to cute!

Tiffany said...

How cute is that! Those are the moments that make motherhood so worth all of the tantrums and all of the challenges!

DYSFUNCTIONAL MOM said...

Totally cute! You're going to have a full house for many, many years to come! lol

High Heeled Mama said...

Aw, my heart just melted!

anglophilefootballfanatic.com said...

How'd I miss this yesterday? Well, I have to say, sounds like you've got two boys headed to the seminary, hon. They can room with mine.

Jennifer, Playgroups Are No Place For Children said...

How wonderful that you wrote about this so you'll always remember...especially when they DO want to leave.

Tracey said...

My 6 year old says he's going to get married but live next door... I can handle that, but I'm thinking a future daughter in law might have issues with it...

ConverseMomma said...

I want my son to live with me forever. Just kidding, well sort of. I guess I want the little 2 year old to live with me forever, not the 35 year old unshaven bachelor who stinks up the place with his dirty socks and eats all the food out of the fridge.
This was really sweet!

Karen MEG said...

Cherish these moments, Kathryn... just so beautiful and priceless.

Michelle Kemper Brownlow said...

HOW PRECIOUS!
Nothing sweeter than those words in a mom's ear...although a chocolate/peanut butter cup blizzard from Dairy Queen comes DANG close!

Hug those boys!

Nissa said...

Ahhh.. if only they stayed that way forever.. so sweet & loving..

Nowadays I get "You're the worst mom EVER! I can't WAIT to get out of this house!" :) Gotta love the hormones..NOT!

the dragonfly said...

Aww...what sweet boys you have!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
