a long, long time
Two minutes ago I was in the kitchen, making Nate's lunch for "Lunch Bunch" at preschool today. He was sitting at the table, eating Cheerios and bananas.
Nate: Mommy? When will I get to be a daddy?
Me (coming over and crouching next to him): That is a great question Nate! Someday you will meet a lovely lady and you will get married, just like Mommy and Daddy are married. Then you guys will have babies and you'll get to be their daddy.
Me: But not for a long, long time.
Nate (thinks about it for a second, then): Like after I finish my breakfast?
Ahh to be three.
In other news, happy 30th birthday to my sweet husband! I love you Jon, and I'm so glad you are the kind of daddy that makes our son want to be a daddy too.
