If she's on a flight to Vegas tomorrow, it's not my fault

I babysat a four-year-old this weekend. She has life totally figured out.


Miss Independent (the four year old, not me, duh) : "I'm going to get married one day."

Me: "Oh, you are? When?"

Miss Independent: "I don't know, sometime before I'm too old."

Me: "Who are you going to marry?"

Miss Independent: "I don't know yet. I'm still trying to choose."

Me: "Oh really?"

Miss Independent: "Yeah. There's a lot to choose from you know?"

Me: "Really? Well, no rush. You have time to think about it. Those things take time to figure out."

Miss Independent: "Yeah, I know. I will have to decide. It will probably take me at least all weekend."
