Too Young

"Baby, baby, baby ohh
Baby, baby, baby noo
Like Baby, baby, baby ohh
I thought you'd always be mine (mine)

The teeny bopper voice emanated from the dashboard as we drove along the highway to visit family this weekend. We could hear my little 5 year old singing along, see the top of her head bobbing with the beat.

"Guppy, do you like Justin Bieber?", asked the man from the wheel.

"No. I just like his songs. I don't like him." replied the girlie.

Good answer.

"Mommy, Katie likes Justin Bieber and says that she's going to marry him. I told her that she wasn't going to marry him, because she wasn't even going to meet him!"

"Dream crusher!!", laughed her brother.

"No. I'm just telling her the truth, right Mama? Katie said she knows, but when she says she knows, I don't think she really knows, because she says that all the time about everything and she can't know everything just because she says she does - she actually doesn't really know."

Did you catch that?

The things that come out of a 5 year old pragmatist.

When I was 5, I too, had dreams of marrying someone older.

And he grew up to be the 2009 champion of Dancing with the Stars.

I'm crushed.

That is one smart and very pragmatic 5 year old. She takes after you, right?

Oh she's wonderful! Hopefully she will be able to hang on to her anti-drama mindset in her teen years.

Nothing like a sibling to bring you back to reality!

I'm still thinking that one day my 2nd husband will be Jordan Knight from NKOTB. You never know.... first husband hasn't said anything yet - it could happen!

I used to dream of marrying David Bowie, until (just a few years ago), I realized he's almost as old as my dad. Hmmm. Never mind.

My friends used to tease me about wanting to marry him, because they said he was gay. "Um," I said, "What difference does THAT make? It's not like I'll ever meet him!"

Keep on dreaming, hon. That's all I can say.
