A Conversation That Will Change Your Life

Jamie Farrell wedding pictureMunchkin is at that special age where he’s beginning to understand that grown-ups have discussions that are over his head, but he wants to understand, which led to this conversation the other day:

Munchkin: “Mommy, how does something change your life?”

Me, kinda gaping at him: “Uhhh…”

Munchkin: “Like you said that sweet potato pie changed your life?

Me, now looking like a deer in the headlights because it’s not even 7 AM yet: “Uhhh…”

The Hubby: “Munchkin, a person says something changes their life when they’re introduced to something new that is so good, like the sweet potato pie, that they want to have it again and again.”

Me, breathing a sigh of relief that Hubby can take this one: “Mm-hmm.”

The Hubby: “And it doesn’t even have to be food that changes your life. It can be a vacation, or someone you meet–”

Me, finally breaking out of my stupor: “Yeah! Like getting married. Getting married changes your life. So does having kids.”

Munchkin: “So when I grow up and find a pretty girl to marry–”

Hubby: “Wait, wait, wait. Being pretty has nothing to do with getting married–”

Me: “Ah–”

Hubby: “Not that your mother isn’t pretty–you know what? I don’t want to have this discussion anymore.”

I didn’t ask, but I’m guessing he bailed because continuing that conversation could’ve changed his life.
