Alex’s gem du jour

Lately the focus has been Julianna, so when Alex had this gem a minute ago, I just had to share.

“Mommy, why do you and Daddy get married a lot?”

“Uh…huh?” I said.

“Why do you and Daddy get married a lot?”

I was beginning to squirm. “Um, honey, you only get married once. Daddy and I got married once, and we’ve been married ever since.”

“But why do you and Daddy go and get married a lot?”

OK, clearly I didn’t understand the question. “We don’t get married a lot, Alex…I don’t understand what you mean. We go out on dates. Is that what you mean?”

“Oh, you go out on wedding dates?”

And the light went on. “Oh!” I said. “No, honey, we play music for OTHER people’s weddings a lot.”

That one took a lot of explaining, too, but I won’t bore you with that.
