To Be ... Or Not To Be ....

These past two days have been filled with fabulous blogging opportunities updating you all on the marriage plans of Kaelen and myself. Precious, heart melting moments such as this:

Kaelen: "Mommy. My just want to marry you soon because you are the only girl in the whole wide world for me. And, my want to give you flowers everyday because girls need flowers from boys so they know they are pretty"

Where he gets this kind of information is beyond my understanding but I don't have the inclination to correct him either. I figured, if he wants to give flowers to girls, why not? It would certainly be a step in the right direction in grooming him to be the perfect, thoughtful gentleman. That is until his comment yesterday was:

Kaelen: "Mommy. My not think that my want to marry you anymore."
Mommy: "What? Why not?"
Kaelen: "Well (pause with dramatic sigh) well .... because my want to marry Masyn."
Mommy: "Masyn? Oh ..... "
Kaelen: "Ya, my want to marry Masyn because she is a little girl. You ... you are too grown up for me."
Mommy: "Grown up?"
Kaelen: "Ya. Old. Mommy, you are too old for a boy like me."

Sigh .... I think that I am going to have my work cut out for me in the many years to come after all. Especially seeing as he seems to be taking a page or two from his Daddy's books. You see, my husband is about the most UNROMANTIC man in the world and it is not because he doesn't believe in it - he just doesn't think of it. And, do I even have to mention that getting compliments from the man is like pulling teeth?

So having said that, do you think there is any hope(s) for Kaelen?
