Cute Ollie Story
Ollie accompanied me to the Apple Store tonight, which is always bunch of fun. He asked me what it's like being a grown-up. I told him that it's great, and one of the best things about it is having kids.
He said he definitely wants kids, but doesn't know who he can marry because everyone he loves the most – Lyric, Darby, Cosi, are all related to him. I mentioned his friend Capria as a girl who knows that he would be allowed to marry, and he said he couldn't because it would be embarrassing because she's younger than him and everyone knows that Mommys should be older than Daddys. I guess Darby and my example set that impression in his head.
Finally he just said... "I guess what I'll have to do is just find a cute girl and hang onto her." Which I thought was hilarious. But then he said, "Oh, but I don't want to have to go on a Honeymoon with her." To which I answered, "But it's just a fun vacation you get to take." He thought about that and answered, "Ok, yeah, I think I'll take her to Legoland, then!"
So, future wife of Ollie, where ever you are, being cute... you have a romantic trip to Legoland to look forward to.

HAHAHAHAHA--legoland is tied with Niagra Falls for top honeymoon spot, I am pretty sure!
And EVERYONE knows that the best Mommy's are older than Daddys;-)

What a way to make everyone smile :) Kids are the coolest and it's amazing and amusing to hear their minds work.

legoland would have been a huge improvement over my honeymoon. Maybe Ollie should give lessons.

Ollie is really cute. I can hear that little brain whirring away from here.
My older wife is great, so I agree with Ollie on that one.

He and Lyric say the funniest things.
Mike and I are in the minority...he is three years older.

well, tell ollie that capria can hold her own around anyone at any age... so if he's up for the challenge then we can arrange the marriage now, deal?? hopefully she'll decide to potty train before he gets her!
