Honestly, it's probably going to be the best marriage proposal I ever get (if not the only one, haha).
Seriously, though it was so stinking cute. I babysit regularly for a family and they have two little boys (and a little one on the way). Their children are the sweetest most well behaved little guys I have ever met. I look forward to seeing them every chance I get. On Tuesday, their four year old, Matthew and I were outside playing in his sandbox and we were talking. Matthew saw my purity ring on my left hand and he asked me if I was married. I told him no, that my ring meant that I was waiting to find someone to marry (simple version lol).
Matthew said, "You can marry me!"
I replied, "That's nice of you Matthew, but I think I'm a little too old for you."
Matthew didn't seemed phased at all by this answer. He assuredly informed me, "That's okay, when I grow up then you can marry me."
I had to laugh as I told him, "Well, how about, when you're older if you still want to get married, we'll talk. Sound like a plan?"
Matthew in his adorableness confidently looked at me and said, "Sounds like a plan."
Seriously people. It doesn't get much cuter then that. Sitting outside in a plastic turtle shaped children's sandbox. I'd be content to remember that as my first marriage proposal for the rest of my life.
Children are such a blessing, in a few simple words they can make you feel like the most amazing and beautiful person in the world.
And someday, I tell you, a long time from now, little red-headed Matthew is going to make some wonderful girl a spectacular husband. :)
