All Aubrey Needs Is Love

I’m on day four on the road so I’m really missing my little Aubrey. I try not to be gone longer than five consecutive days at a time (that seems to be a real breaking point for both of us) but this week will be six by the time I get home on Saturday.

When I miss her a lot I torture myself by looking at our videos and her pictures, watching Modern Family episodes on ABC.com, etc. I’m a glutton for punishment.

Anyway, I thought I’d share our latest home video. We made it last week. Aubrey has been very interested in the concept of marriage lately. I think this is common for 4 yr olds. Anyway, she understands when two individuals love each other, they may choose to get married (unless they are being discriminated against… but that’s another blog). Having very little concept of adult, romantic love at this point, she believes marriage is simply about love. It’s very sweet and innocent.

The sweetest thing is that she has been telling me for a couple weeks now is that she wants to marry me. “I’m going to marry YOU, mommy!” Awwwww. I’ve explained to her that family members can’t marry each other, but she’s not buying it.

More recently, she has also expressed an interest in marrying our chihuahua, Bob Barker. I haven’t gotten into the inter-species aspect of why that’s never going to happen, but it sure is nice to know Bob and I are loved so much.

Here is Aubrey and Bob Barker’s quickie wedding ceremony. The happiest girls I know 🙂

Interracial Marriages: They're Not Just For Breakfast Anymore

I’m pretty excited about this article from CNN.com! According to a Pew Research Center report, interracial marriages are at an all time high! So I think this means I might be able to FINALLY marry one of these white dudes I keep dating.

Here’s the article: http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/06/04/pew.interracial.marriage/index.html

Sometimes, brown people get crap from other similar brown people for not dating/marrying within their brownness. I’m going to be completely honest here and let it be known that I have never, ever dated (or married) a non-white guy. Or a woman. Or an animal. It’s not that I wouldn’t – the guy part, that is – but, I’m not kidding, a brown person has never asked me out. Except once an Asian American guy asked me out and he was shorter than me, bald and had a weird body. I would have said no to this guy in any shade of skin. It wasn’t because he was of Asian decent.
I have a nice white fella now and I’m hoping to hang on to this one. Hey he’s tall and can reach stuff on the top cabinet shelf without having to get out a step stool. Also good for lifting heavy objects (reason 1003 I could never be a lesbian – someone’s got to lift stuff). But at the end of the day, all I know is: People are people, so why should it be… we can’t just date and marry whomever the hell we want and everyone else can just mind their own business? Right?

Paul and Stevie pretty much summed it all up waaaay back in 1982. Easy listen on…
