Arranged Marriage

While on the phone with a good friend of mine who feels like she is dying from the bird flu. The topic of Drama came up. We all know that I might be a little dramatic, but Bella is the Drama Queen. When asked what she wants to be when she grows up all she talks about is wanting to shop for shoes. My reply is always the same "Well Bella I hope you marry well" I have a feeling she will still be living at home when shes thirty because she wont be able to move out on her Starbucks salary due to her shoe shopping addiction. Maybe she will marry an architect who will design her a house that looks just like Manolo Blahnik Mary Jane. I'm sure that would be the only thing that would get her to move out of our house. Then she can literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes.

A girl can dream right?

Then my friend who is suffering from the Bird Flu (a bad cold with a hint of Dramatic much) thought that I should arrange a marriage for Bella! Why didn't I think of that first? Since Bella is a bit on the high maintenance side already I figured why not get started now. Finding Bella a rich man to marry could take a little time and effort, but I think it could work.

If it were only possible to marry off your 4 year old. While adults fight about real things, just think about what 4 year old would fight about. Who gets the last chocolate chip cookie and what cartoon they are going to watch first. While Bella fights for the cookie and the right to watch Cinderella her "husband" is thinking because he is the MAN of the house he gets the cookie and wants to watch Power Rangers. Knowing Bella this fight would last all day long and she would end up throwing the cookie away or feeding it to the dog. Then she would solve the other problem by unplugging the TV. While her "Husband" tries to talk her into shopping on Rodeo Drive followed by Breakfast at Tiffany's. All of this for a darn cookie and Power Rangers! I'm sure with the idea of new shoes and something sparkly to wear around her neck she would give in. Maybe not Bella sure loves her Chocolate.

Even thought I'm not serious about this, it at least is a good thought right? How funny would it be could you see Bella being married to some other little 4 year old. They both have to go home before Dinner because there is no way I would allow my child to live with anyone else, but me. He can just support her shoe habit.

Until Next Time,
Just MOM

Is it wrong that I immediately knew what designer those shoes were by? Or more wrong that my dog is named after that designer?
