The Big Announcement

My daughter hates sleeping alone. Hence, the reason that she ventures down the dark staircase every night and tries to wriggle her way between Cameron and me. Or, she finds her way into her brother’s bed and we find her snuggled up to him in the morning. My husband– in an attempt to get her to stay in her bed–told her last week that she can’t sleep with anyone else until she’s married. So, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised when she announced at dinner last night:

“Daddy, I asked Matthew (a little boy in her class) to marry me so that he can start sleeping with me.”

My husband almost choked on his food.

I pray that Matthew’s parents– his dad happens to be the pastor at a big church in town– didn’t hear a similar story.


  1. Oh congrats! When’s the big day? 😉

  2. Hilarious.

  3. That’s too funny! Kids are so cute!

  4. LOL!!! That’s so funny and cute! That’s definitely a story you need to tell her when she’s older 😛

  5. So what colour is your hat? LOL that made me smile, thank you for sharing.

  6. Oh, Wow! She figure out how to solve her problem creatively! Do you approve of Matthew??

  7. Hilarious! Kids are so adorable. Poor Matthew doesn’t even know what’s going on – love it.

  8. I honestly knew about the majority of this, but never the less, I still assumed it turned out valuable. Sweet task!

  9. Absolutely hysterical! This is a keeper.

    They all hate sleeping alone. I’m trying to “break up” my 5-year-old from sleeping with her older sister. I haven’t tried the marriage angle yet!

  10. Impressive message, I wait for posts by you.

  11. Oh Katerkins!

  12. You can wait till the cows come home.

  13. This is priceless!! Totally just made my day!!


  14. This is hilarious! And what a smart idea to write down your kids funny quotes. We did that, and it is an invaluable collection. wb

  15. That is fabulous! I love it when little girls (in their innocence) totally freak out daddy!
