The Oedipus Chronicles: At least he's self aware, right?

Sam: "How do you think I feel about you, Mommy?"

Me: [pause, since I was just yelling at him to get his FRIGGIN UNDERWEAR on already!] "I don't know. How do you feel about me?"

Sam: "I really love you. I love you so much."

Me: "Oh! I love you, too."

Sam: "You make me very, very happy, Mommy."

Me: "Aw. Thanks."

Sam: "So I think we should get married."

Me: "But we've talked about this. We can't get married because I'm your Mommy."

Sam: "It's okay, though, Mommy. Because ALL little boys feel this way about their mommies." [shurg] "It's just part of being a little boy."

Me: "I think you're right."

I'm a lurker, but just had to say... my little boy said pretty much the same thing yesterday.
"Mama, when I grow up, I'm going to marry you."
"Oh, I'm sorry honey, I can't marry you because I'm already married to daddy."

So, today he had a new idea.
"Mama, when Daddy is a Grandpa, THEN I will marry you!"
"But, S, when Daddy is a Grandpa, then I'll be a Grandma." Which he thought was hilarious.

It's nice that my little guy thinks it's funny I'll be OLD someday! :)

Thanks for all the fun!
