T- Can you marry your cousin?
Me- Uh....(remembering he's not technically MY child) No. You can't marry someone in your family.
LB- Which cousin do you want to marry?
LB- Is that a boy? Or a girl?
T- It's a girl. Duh. Boys can't marry boys.
Me-(remember the innocence!) in some states they can.
T- COOOOOL. That means I can marry Forrest!
Me- (backpedal backpedal backpedal) You'd have to move to another state...like Vermont.
LB- Well. If you and Forrest were brothers you couldn't.
(This much is true.)
T- But we're not.
Me- Why don't you and Ladybug get married, T? I mean, you are like BFF right? (OMG,LOL,IDK MYBFFJILL)
T- (enthusiastically) Okay! Why didn't I think of that?
LB- What If I move to Virginia?
T- We'll have to fly in a plane.
LB- Will you come live with me in Virginia?
T- Yes. Or you can come live with me in Idaho.
LB- Okay. Where's Idaho?
And like that, it was over and we were onto less serious business like whether doo-doo head was a bad word.
(which it's totally NOT)
