Claire has become over-the-top in love with me. The other day she tried to make out with my face. I told her that she couldn't do that and she was like, "Why? Because it's just for grown-ups?" I'm like yeah, and teenagers. (DP glared at me.)
Then last night we were cuddling before bedtime and she looked up at me and said, "Mom. I want to get married to you." It was a bit funny the way she was being all romantic like and I could hear DP snickering into his pillow, but it was really cute too. So I was like, but I'm already married. (Like that's the reason.) And she's like, "I know, to Daddy. I wish 3 people could get married." So I was like when you're a grown-up you can get married to someone your own age. She was like, "I know, to a boy," and she made a yuck face. So I said actually, you can get married to whomever you want, or even not get married at all. She was like, "but I want to be with you guys. When I go to McDonald's or to the store, I want to bring you guys with me." Oh, THAT'S where she's going with all this. I understood. So DP jumped in quickly and was like, don't worry, mummy and daddy will never leave you. It will always be us 3 together. (Aw!)
She seemed satisfied so she went back to cuddling with me and man, I just wanted to hold her forever. Which lasted all of five minutes, because even though I wear flannel winter pyjamas and she wears just underwear to bed, she is a hot, sweaty mess.
