There should be a registry for people like me.

At Girl Scouts on Monday:

Girl Scout IAC, age 8: Miss Chickadee, why do you wear four rings on your ring finger?

Chick: Well, see *taking off rings and showing her* it’s really only three. One is my engagement ring and one is my wedding ring and then there is a ring that wraps around my engagement ring. It looks like two, but it’s only one.

IAC: See my ring? *shows me a ring on her index finger*

Chick: Very beautiful.

IAC: Did you know there is a difference in a wedding and being wed?

Chick: Boy did I ever! I mean, what do you mean?

IAC: See, you can be wed to someone without being married.

Chick: Is that right?

IAC: You have to be at least five to be wed. I’m wed to a boy in Kentucky. If I ever take the ring off, that means we’re broken up forever and ever.

Chick: Too bad divorce isn’t that simple, huh?

IAC: Huh?

Chick: Never mind.

IAC: The boy I’m wed to? His name is Josh.

Chick: Is he a nice boy?

IAC: He’s okay for now. I’m not taking my ring off until I find someone better.

Chick: Well. Thanks for waiting.

Kids are great for a laugh. My daughter was convinced she needed to be married at five and that they would go on a "five year olds honeymoon".

That is too good. If only it were that simple indeed

Treasure these things. Write them down.

Wait. . . you just did.

Doh.

Priscilla said...

Oh yes! See, this is why I love reality tv so much.

Girls are so fickle. My 3 year old has a boy that she plays with all the time and he worships her. But, if he upsets her, she "dumps" him and goes to play with the other girls. This is her at the age of 3!!!!

I wish it were that easy to upgrade hubbies...no offense to my current hubby, but if I meet Orlando Bloom, you bet that wedding ring's coming off!!!! j/k

Her comment about the difference between a wedding and being wed...takes most of us a couple more decades to figure that one out. She could give seminars in kindergarten.

Found you through Hotfessional, and I'll be back!
