The Proposal

No, not the movie. And nope, not Mike’s to me…

We’ve had quite a few in our family over the past few weeks though. I’ll be in the kitchen and I’ll hear Burke and Maggie in the other room talking about how to best make it so they can both pet the cat. And then I’ll hear Burke say something along the lines of: “Maggie, let’s get married – that way we can share Tiger!” Or we’ll be giving the kids a bath and I’ll hear Burke say, “Logan, let’s get married so we can share that toy.” Good to see he doesn’t discriminate 😉  And I suppose I should be happy that we’re teaching them one aspect of a good marriage … it’s all about sharing. LOL!

It made me wonder if he asks everyone at school to marry him as well. And while I haven’t heard any stories about Burke, I did run into the mom of one of Maggie’s classmates at Open House the other night. Apparently Troy* came home the other day and said, “Mom! I have something to tell you!” …but then got shy and didn’t want to tell her right away. After a little while he came out with “Maggie asked me to marry her today!!” Now I have to wonder what toy he was playing with 😉

When I got home, I mentioned to Maggie that I had me Troy’s mom. She calmly said, “Oh, I asked Troy to marry me. He said no.” And that was the end of that.

*Name changed.

Thursday Theater: The Art of Sharing a Lollipop

Burke and Maggie received lollipops for cleaning up the living room…and decided that they *might* share with Logan.
