Today during a 30 minute drive in the car, Colton had his usual life pondering questions for me. This time it was about growing older and marriage. Here is a little tidbit of our conversation:
Colton: How will I know who to marry?
Mommy: Well, after your mission and during college or after you will want to spend time with girls, and one of those girls you will really like and eventually want to always spend time with so you will get married and start a family.
Colton: What did Daddy like about you that he wanted to marry you?
Mommy: Daddy thought I was pretty. He thought I was smart. He liked that I went to church. He and I laughed together a lot. We talked together well and we enjoyed having fun together.
Colton: Can I marry a girl who wears a ponytail all the time?
Mommy: Sure. Daddy likes when I wear a ponytail, too.
Mommy: I guess he thinks it is cute.
Colton: I think it is cute too.
(Gee...if only it took a ponytail to win over someone's love)
