Girl Brides

I was just laughing over a post from one of my favorite bloggers, Jenny of Notes from the Plumb Tree, who recorded a conversation with her precious daughter about her future wedding day.  Too cute!  Click here to read :-)

In my comment, I shared a favorite memory from when my little sister was about 3 years old.  After I submitted it, I realized that I wanted to share it with you, too!
We love to tease my sister, Kate, because when she was 3, she wanted to marry Daddy.  She was obsessed with Snow White at the time, so she announced that she would wear a Snow White dress, and Daddy would dress up as Frosty the Snowman.  She even picked out the wedding venue--the local La Quinta Inn!  But it had a snazzy bell tower, so how was a 3 year old supposed to know it was just a hotel?

When she discussed all of the details with my mom, Mom said, "If you marry Daddy, what will happen to me?!?"

Without batting an eye, Kate responded, "You can be one of the seven dwarves.  You'll be Grumpy."


  1. Kids, huh? Sometimes these "serious" conversations with them make you want to hit the floor dying with laugher. I thought your little reply was hilarious as well. "Grumpy". Oh dear. That's the icing on the cake!

  2. Hehe, that is hilarious. Your poor mom, was she grumpy!?

  3. HAHAHA. That would be disturbing if it weren't so funny. And so... Kate. The thing that cracks me up about kids when they say things like that is they sound like they've thought it through so thoroughly. I knew a little kid who insisted that he had to have a motorcycle, and he knew exactly what he was going to do with it and where he would park it. Even though their reasoning is bizarre, you have to admit that there IS some reasoning there...
    I laughed outloud at the Frosty the Snowman thing, though.


Your sweet comments make my day! Thank you for coming to visit ♥
