Amen, Sister!

Lily said the funniest thing while we were driving in the car yesterday.

Lily: "You wanna know the worst time to get married?"

I'm thinking she's going to say a season or time of the year.

Me: "When?"

Lily: "When you're thirteen."

I smile in the driver's seat and look back at her in the rear view mirror. She's all business.

Lily: "You wanna know why?"

Me: "Uh-huh."

Lily: "Well first, you're all sassy and crabby then. And second, who do you know that's your boyfriend when you're thirteen?"

Me: "That's exactly right, honey, exactly right."

Such a sweet post about your Gram. I'm glad you will have those photos and thoughts to look back on. I loved giving the life sketch at my grandma's funeral and when I am thinking of her a lot I look back at it and remember all her great qualities.

Lilly is a SMART COOKIE! Tell her thirty is a great age -if you can find yourself a younger man :)

So, cute. Don't you have a birthday coming up? What do you think about having a girls night out to celebrate? Let me know what you think.

What a delightful exchange. Scary when one so young can also be so wise.

Good grief! Where did she get that? Sounds very mature for her age. Very funny!

Hee hee! That's right... just keep on thinking that, little one! In fact, want to know the second worst time to get married? ANY time before you are 25, finished with graduate school and have some serious traveling under your belt and a bank account worth 10K or so... right, Mom? :)
