It's amazing when my 5-year-old comes home talking about the history behind MLK day. When I was in Kindergarten, we learned our color...

My Son's Wife

If any of you read my blog about my son's little girlfriend, you'll remember how replaced I felt. It was so sweet seeing him adore this beautiful little girl. I felt I was doing a good job teaching how to treat a lady. He's affectionate and funny...a great catch if I don't say so myself.

Well he's 4 1/2 and up until now he's at least always said that he wanted to marry 'mommy' when he got older. I knew that would change some day, but I didn't know it would come so soon.

After getting home from Pump It Up last night, he couldn't stop talking about his little girlfriend. They even held hands when they'd go from one room to the next. Sickening...I tell you!

Well last night he told me point blank: Toni's gonna be my wife some day mom!

...not mommy....MOM...and very matter of fact too.

I said, "She is huh? She's awfully pretty."

He said, "Yeah, and she's got room in her heart for Jesus!"

Ahhh.....that was the sweetest thing he could of ever said. I told him, "Just remember. That's the most important thing to look for when taking a wife."

He said, "Yeah mom...I'll remember."

I'm a blessed girl! I pray every day that these are lessons he'll remember.
