Truer words have never been spoken.

My son is often saying that he doesn't want to get married. I'm not exactly sure where this declaration keeps coming from but he's been saying it for a year now and he's adamant about it each time he says it.

Last night at dinner, Sarah was asking who I loved more - her, Peter or Daddy. She and I have been having this conversation a lot lately so I explained again how I loved all three equally but that I loved Daddy first. And because I loved Daddy, we got married and had her and Peter.

Of course, upon hearing the word 'married', Peter loudly exclaimed, "I'm never getting married!"

Dan said, "But if you don't get married, then you can't have kids."

Peter retorted and this is verbatim (yes, I wrote it down so I wouldn't forget), "Why would you want kids? All they do is make a big mess!"

I told you he was smart.

I wish I'd been that clever when I was five.

Or even twenty five.

i love it! my oldes (7) says he's not getting married either. better yet, he plans to live with us forever!!! ugh!!

Mari said...

He's got that figured out pretty early in life! I bet he'll be changing his mind!

Melissa said...

LOL! That is hysterical!!

Brittany said...

Wow. That is a hoot. Smart kid!

Annikke said...

Oh my... that is hilarious!!! Yep, he is a smart one!! :o)

Badness Jones said...

Lol! The Princess (4) says that she's not going to get any kids either. Of course, she can't decide if she's going to marry her brother or our dog, so with either of those routes I think no kids is a good thing....

Christina said...

That had me laughing out loud. Only a child could put this in this kind of perspective. You have to keep what he said and remind him of it on his wedding day. My daughter once said she was never going to have kids and I told her I was writing it down and going to give it to her as a gift at her baby shower.

Sounds like he has it all figured out. My 4 year old informed me the other day that "boys just do not understand girls". Some things really don't change as we get older I guess.

About 3 months into Kindergarten, my son now is going to marry whatever girl in his class was nice to him that day. Last year, he was going to marry me. *sniff*
KEEP BELIEVING

Came back to say 'You've been tagged'!

Chelle' said...

I'm almost certain he started that verbatim statement with "Eeeeew. Girl's are icky and have cooties."

Yup. Pretty sure.

Once those hormones kick it, I bet he'll have a different song to sing.

Motherhood for Dummies said...

ha haa. Well at least he is aware that he causes those messes. Maybe you wont have to worry about him making anymore with a relazation like that! :)

the dragonfly said...

Oh yes, very true! But I wouldn't trade my messy little boy for a spotless house ever. :)

jennwa said...

He is so smart. He gets it from his Mom.

Michelle said...

Beth, thanks for stopping by. (and ps, it's ok if you don't like collards, I just enjoyed seeing you).

My 89yr old adamantly also says she never wants to get married and doesn't want kids. She is also my little rocket scientist. Maybe it's a "smart kid" thing?

Michelle said...

Sorry, not 89.She just turned 9 and I am still trying to remember she isn't 8.

tommie said...

That kid is too smart for his own good!

Karen MEG said...

He is a smart cookie, isn't he? LOL!

HRH said...

Way too cute.

Not Your Regular Mini Van Mom said...

Out of the mouths of babes! That is too funny. Kids really do say the darndest things :)

Don Mills Diva said...

The boy knows his mind - let's see how he feels when he falls in love with someone other than mommy!
