today during the boys' bath time, noah and i got talking about men and women and being married.
it went something like this:
n: and one day when i become a man i'll have kids too!
me: well, if you want kids, you'll have to get married so they can have a mommy.
n: so i'll marry you!
me: aw, that's sweet noah, but i'm already married to daddy. so you'll have to marry someone else.
n: what about auntie jen?
me: *laughs* nope, she's married to uncle graham.
n: what about miss jen?
me: nope. she's married to mr. nick!
you know how you have friends like hannah b and hannah t and leah? well when you become a man, they will become women. so maybe one day you'll marry one of them.
n: yeah. like hannah t.
noah thinks about this for a bit longer and then becomes distracted by jude playing with the bubbles. jude flops on his belly in the bathtub and laughs. noah does the same and laughs as well.
n: i think i'll just marry jude.
oh kids. i love their innocence. i love the lack of filter. i love being a mommy.
