I get such a kick out of Velveteen Mind's kids --
Basically, Son #2 is marrying his fellow nursery school mate, Evelyn, because she's a perfect wife -- she knows how to "run fast." (!!!) And during the the wedding, he's going to hire a "dancing pig," so Evelyn's mom will have someone to dance with.
Daughter #2 used to play this little game, only she was married to a circus dwarf. Every time they had a kid, she'd throw them in the backyard. That yard was getting pretty cluttered after a while! :) She's now 20, and I still enjoy bringing up her 'husband,' if only to watch her roll her eyes and humor Mom.
You'll find me Saturday and Sunday at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Festival in Loveland, CO...exhibits, classes, lectures -- come and visit! Admission is only $5 for each day; download a $2 coupon for both days.
It's at the Ranch (Larimer County Fairgrounds Complex). Here's the place for more information:
