Getting married, part 2

Here’s a conversation that occurred just before church today:

Jonathan (leading Emma by the hand): “We’re going to the temple to get married!”

Emma: “Wait!  I have to get a baby in my tummy.”

Me (wanting to correct her order here, as my children often get these mixed up – apparently babies are things that appear in every woman who gets married): “You get married before you have a baby in your tummy.”

Jonathan (in a “silly Mom” kind of way): “Nooo.”

(and to Emma):  “Now let’s get married.”

Emma: “Wait!  You leaved the baby.”

She runs, gets a baby doll, and stuffs it under her dress.  Then she and Jonathan go down the stairs, hand-in-hand, move to the living room, and start twirling and humming.

Jonathan (when done twirling): “Now let’s go to the hospital to get the baby out.”

Emma: “But she’s still growing.”

She follows him to another area anyway.

Jonathan (to Emma): “Go: ‘Aaaahhhh!'”

Emma: “Aaaahhhhh!”

Jonathan (in his “baby” voice): “Waa!”

“Hurry!  Get the marble away so she doesn’t eat it.”

And then they are coming back up the stairs, Emma protectively holding the baby doll.

As a clarification – we’ve started pointing out all the little toys the children need to keep cleaned up so Kathryn won’t get to them in the near future (including the “Hungry Hungry Hippos” marbles).  Thus far, we’ve not had much luck.  Hopefully they’ll learn soon, or they may lose certain toys for a while!

  1. You guys… you seriously have the most hilarious children! I wish i could be a fly on the wall and hear it first hand :) I’m anxious for Sophie to really start talking, but I’m afraid I’ll get mostly sass out of her.

  2. Believe me, we get plenty of that, too. We’re working on discouraging it, but it’s definitely a work in progress there.

  3. That is very funny!! :):)
