Backseat Banter

While listening to What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love and Understanding...

Mommy:
"You know this man singing is a twin daddy."

Sarah: "Two boys, two girls or a boy and a girl?"

Mommy: "Two boys."

Sarah (with clear disdain): "Humph."

Darren: "I'm going to have four kids, and I'm going to adopt them all."

Mommy: "That sounds really nice, Darren. You'll be a great daddy."

Darren: "I'm going to name them Samantha, Katie, Matthew and Jonathan. So there will be six people in our family."

Sarah: "Whenever anyone asks me to marry them, I'm going to say 'No.'"

Mommy: "What if you love them, Sarah?"

Sarah: "Nope. I'm going to have kids with no husband."

Mommy: "Having kids is fun but a lot of work, Sarah. It's nice if you have someone to help you."

Sarah: "I don't need any help. After we go to bed, all you all do is talk anyway. No big deal. I'm okay alone."

Well okay, then. I'm guessing Sarah's kids' uncle will be a good support system...

How very liberated! I'm guessing she'll change her mind, though. And love Darren's choice of names! Hint...one of his girl's names is in our top two.
