MY FUTURE SON-IN-LAW

Since the ripe age of two, my youngest daughter has been betrothed to my friends son, Jeremiah. We've "talked about it" so much that they refer to each other as "husband" and "wife." It's so funny really, because when they do see each other, he's more interested in playing with my boys! The other day, I told her that she has to marry a man that really likes us or else she won't be able to come visit me all the time.

Yes, I know, I'm a manipulator.

Anyway, she responds with, "But, you like him!"

"Like who???"

"Jeremiah!!"

Ohhhh!! I should have known! And yes, he does like me, his mom and I are great friends, and his dad is a pastor...so it's all good!

Here they are last year, 4th of July! Oh, so cute! They both look like they do not want to take a picture together! Haha!

Now, they're looking pretty comfy only a few months later at the Harvest Festival! Is this a glimpse into the future? We'll see!

I had one of those friends, too. We said we were going to marry each other when we were 5. We grew up as bestfriends until I was almost 18. I miss his friendship, but he has changed.. so it's for the better! :)

I have betrothed my son to my friends daughter already! Whenever my girlfriend and I get together, we always call them "The Betrothed"! - and there is no problem picking your children's future spouses... I already am! I'm claiming my son's wife in the name of Jesus! LOL!

Helene said...

That is SO cute....her first little crush!! Wouldn't it be something if they really did end up getting married to each other? You could show those pics in the slideshow at their wedding!!

Don't worry about being manipulative....I'm always telling my sons that they have to marry girls that I approve of because there is no way I'm gonna let them marry some girl who will whisk them halfway across the country from me!!!

Melissa said...

too cute!!! there's a couple in our church that were like that when they were little. Always knew they were going to get married, even as little kids, and they DID! So cute!

Lorie said...

I have betrothed my children out as well....if only it were that easy, wouldn't it be great if we got to choose our inlaws? Of course I guess that could come back to bite you as well.
