I just had such a funny conversation with Jakey in the car. He was asking about marriage and how you get married. Craig told him that when he finds the girl he wants to marry, he should ask her and give her a ring. But then very seriously he told us that everyone in the world is already married so he wouldn't be able to marry anyone! We had to explain to him that there are little girls out there that are 3,4, 5, 6 years old that would be growing up at the same time as him and when he was ready to marry, they would also be grown up and ready to marry as well. So then naturally he wanted to know how old he had to be to get married! Oh my goodness!
Soooo, skirting around the issue that I myself was married at 19, I told him that he should go to college so that he can get really smart and become a Marine Biologist and become a Shamu trainer like he's always wanted. Then at that point he would be about 23 or 24 depending on how much schooling he would have to do and around then would be a good time. His response? That's a LONG time!!
I then had to talk about how little he is and asked if he liked living with us to which he replied he certainly did and didn't want any of us to grow up! Cute little guy! He then moved on to how he wants 4 kids and what if he can't have 4 kids?? I assured him that if he talks to his wife before he asks her to marry him, and makes sure that's what she wants as well, he should be OK. I told him since I was a little girl of about his age, I knew I always wanted 4 kids. And even if something happens that they can't have kids, he could always adopt. He also wanted to know what to do if his wife was a selfish person...and didn't want that many kids, "Should I ask her if she's selfish??"
Oh my goodness, this boy is too much!
