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?
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.
