The kids were hungry and Grace was shrieking "Chicken! Fries!" as we got into the car, so I ran through the McDonalds drive thru, (don't judge) and then headed towards our house. The plan was to drop them at our house so I could get Grace down for her nap, put a movie on for Nate, then rush back out to the store. (We have friends staying with us right now, so there was adult supervision.)
So we're sitting at a red light and Nate asks me, "Mom, what if Dad had married someone else?" Now, you might remember Nate has brought this up before, that time he asked Jason why he married me, and then asked him, "But who was your second choice?" I'm starting to get a complex.
"Well," I said, looking at him in the rearview mirror, "I'd be really sad, cause then I guess I wouldn't get to be your mom."
Nate shook his head. "But if he married someone else, then you could buy the chicken nuggets while she goes to the grocery store."
I am not even kidding you, that's what he said. And now I can say the most compelling argument I've ever heard for polygamy came from my 5 year old son.
Chicken nuggets for everyone!!
