My girls are the typical little girls. Pig Will (PW) is a bit more on the “tomboy” side. She loves to climb trees, dig in the dirt and explore anything new. Pig Me Too (PMT) is a bit more reserved and dainty. She absolutely has to wear a dress or skirt on most days (sometimes I MAKE her wear pants!).
So, I was not surprised when the wedding topic came up again yesterday. This time, however, it was not questions about the actual wedding, but more about how you decide to get married.
First, from PW, “Mom, how did you meet dad? and how did you know that he was your husband?” Next, from PW, “So then, how did you know he was not already married?” (laughing to self!) Then, PMT, “Did you wear a dress for your wedding? a wedding dress? and is that when daddy gave you your rings? Is the diamond one your wedding ring? Did you give daddy a ring too?” Then, again from PW, “How do you know when it is time to grow up and get married?” She was very worried about having to move out. This has come up several times in her short 6 years. I, of course, put her mind at ease and explained that she doesn’t ever have to get married if she doesn’t want to… but most likely she will meet a boy, fall in love and WANT to get married.
In other news, PMT is still afraid of having her hair washed. We had worked through some issues and finally started having a calm hair wash session a few months ago. Then, one of us (probably husband!), got water in her eyes and we’ve been back at the battle of her crying the entire time we are washing her hair. What do we do? I am sooooooooo tired of it.
Speaking of tired… what is up with mosquitoes? I don’t remember constantly battling with them until about 3 years ago. Anyone have any good solutions to not get bit? I cannot stand bug spray.
