The weekend before Christmas Keith and I drove the kids around to look at Christmas lights. It's one of my favorite December traditions, but I think they boys are starting to get old on us, they weren't nearly as excited about it this year as usual. They slept through some of it even!
On the drive, we learned how we'd failed to teach the boys, especially Caden about a good marriage.
As we drove through one town, Keith was talking about the place he went with his guys from work for lunch recently. Caden, from the back seat, pipes up and asks why he goes with the guys to lunch and why he doesn't take his girlfriend to lunch. He was completely serious.
I popped up quickly and said "he better not have a girlfriend; I'm his wife!"
Caden, again, completely serious, says, but "he can have a girlfriend too!"
Keith and I then had to start talking about marriage and relationships and commitment. It was brief int he car, but the next day at lunch, I told the boys a short version of our dating and marriage to help them know us better and better understand commitment!
