Child Bride

A Conversation, cont’d:

But Mommy I really want to marry C.
[He’d already explained that getting married means kissing on the lips]
Sorry, sweetie, you’re still too young.
But T and E got married and T is in kindergarten just like me.
E did that without her mommy or daddy knowing.
But mooommm…
[stroke of parenting genius here]
C isn’t in kindergarten yet, you have to wait till she’s older.
Till she’s in preschool?
Yes, at least preschool.
