Marriage and Babies - A Kid's Eye View

We make a cute baby, though.
The Hubs cousin, Shaun, recently got married. While his parents were out of town for the wedding, Supergirl kept asking me what we were going to buy for the baby. "What baby, is Shaun having a baby?" I looked at the Hubs who shrugged while the Supergirl nodded her head.

"She's getting married, she's getting a baby."
Snuggling with the Supergirl on the couch after a long day, she places her order.

"Momma, I would like a baby sister." 

"I'll see what I can do about that." 

"Can I be your flowergirl?" She asks excitedly, sitting back to look at my face.

"Uh, um, I'm already married. To daddy. Remember?"

She rolls her eyes and looks at me with exasperation. "You have to get married EVERY time you get a baby. That's how it works."
She prays upon the penny before she throws it into the fountain. "Dear God, I would really like a baby sister. I think she should be Chinese. I have always wanted to learn to speak Chinese."

Later, in the Chinese restaurant picking up dinner: "This is my momma. Her name is Heather. She likes eggrolls and babies."

I leave wondering if I have just been part of a failed setup.
Leaving from the babysitter's house last night, she tells my friend, "You have 3 husbands and your husband has two wives."

My friend quickly replies, "Oh no, I don't.", to which the Supergirl replies, "How else do you explain all of these children?"
Coming home from the Marriage Retreat this weekend, I announce to Supergirl that her Daddy and I are freshly remarried (we renewed our vows at the retreat).

"I don't care what you do, I am not sharing my room and my stuff. You can put that baby in the closet or something."
