Raina Proposes

About a month ago, just when she was about to step into the bath, Raina had something important to say.
"Mom, when I grow up I'm going to marry Z," she said.
Z is Raina's best friend at preschool, and to him, she's the "awesomest" girl he knows. Z's a little younger to Raina, so he started in her class just a few months ago. One day they began chatting, and since then, it's been Z this, Z that Chez Muser. It wasn't hard to figure out why they became such fast friends. Z's parents are from Lahore and his resemblance to Raina is marked.
A couple of weeks after announcing her nuptials, Raina said, "Mom, I'm so glad Z is not my baby brother. Because if he was, I couldn't marry him, and I want to. I asked him today, and he said, 'OK.'"
"Oh, OK," I said weakly. "Good to know."
My 5-year-old girl just made her first proposal.

can she count to 1000 and higher? if so, she should be commissioned to count the number of white hair on mommy's head now. at least it will keep her out of z's hair!! ;-)

Aaj kal ke bacche, indeed. I think the arranged marriage route may be out for her. Thanks, everyone, for saying nice things :) Emaan, I will definitely show her your pictures. She may switch loyalties, as you are very cute. s.b., you are absolutely on the mark about the grey hair. Can hardly wait till she's a teenager. Right.
