My husband and I were talking about what a hard time he’s going to have when our daughter gets older, and boys start paying her attention. To put it mildly, her Daddy won’t come off as kind and gentle to her suitors.

I relayed this information to my nine year old daughter and said, “I feel sorry for the guys you’re going to have in your life. It won’t be easy for them, or for you.”

To which she replied, “It’s really okay, Mom. I’m not worried about it…I plan on being a widow.”

    Your daughter is very funny! I worry about when my twin girls get older. I may have to tell them this widow story. I normally don’t believe in putting ideas in their heads, but we’re talking dating here!

  • chefmom

  • BusyDad

    Well, we all have to have goals. I just wonder, who is responsible for this widowship?

  • Emery Jo

    So she’s gonna cook just like her mama then….


  • Jared

    Looks like Dad won’t have to worry about the boys. Sounds like she is going to take care of them herself. 😀 Your kids are off-the-hook funny!

  • transfattyacid

    The way you describe your husband’s attitude, made me think of the Rodney Atkins song, Cleaning My Gun.

  • HRH

    That is funny…you’ll have to share this plan at her rehersal dinner in the very distant future (after LOTS of wine of course)

  • Ok, Where Was I?


  • Angie

  • Jeremy Neal

    Funny yet scary at the same time. -Jeremy @ Discovering Dad
