Joe: Where you going, Mumma?
Me: Daddy and I are going out on a date! (Internal: SQUEEEEEEEEE!)
Joe: I wanna go on a date!
Me: You can’t go on a date until you’re, um, married. (Internal: Never. Never. Never. You are never growing up and leaving me. I’m going to be the worst mother-in-law in the world. Women will write anonymous blogs about me after dating you.)
Joe: How come you go on a date? I wanna marry you.
Me: (Internal: You are never getting married. You will live in the basement and stay with me forever. Dysfunctional? Who cares? I want to keep you.) Well, you can’t, honey. I”m married to Daddy.
Joe: (genuine surprise) You are married? Then where’s your castle?!
