The Bride and the Broom


My kids are always pretending. And I am constantly coerced into participating. Yesterday, they had a wedding, and my role was mother of the bride and groom.

JORDAN: Mommy, aren't I a beautiful bride?

ME: Yes, Jordan you look gorgeous.

JORDAN: I'm not Jordan. I'm Carissa.

ME: Oh, sorry. You look stunning, Carissa.

JOSHY: Mommy, aren't I a handsome broom?

ME: Oh, yes, so handsome. Um, what's your name?

JOSH: Jethry.

ME: Jethry? You're the most handsome groom I have ever seen!

PA: I am the Rabbi and I will marry you.

JOSH: You can't marry her. I'm marrying her!

PA: Ma nishtanah halailah hazeh mikol haleilot? Sheb'khol haleilot anu okhlin

(Pa doesn't know a lot of Hebrew)

Oy vey. Too bad we didn't get the whole thing on video.

That is so adorable. Handsome broom sounds like a story to me, along the lines of "The Ring Bear."
