Big Love

Girl: Mommy, I have a secret to tell you!
Me (leaning in close): What is it?
Girl (whispering loudly): I have a new boyfriend!
Me: Oh! Who is it?
Girl: Jackson. He's really sweet.
Me: That's good.
Girl: And do you know who his girlfriend is?
Me: Um, you?
Girl: No. Jordan!
Me: Oh.
Girl: We're sharing him!
Me: Oh! I see. Um, I thought you were in love with Jasper?
Girl: Well, yeah. And I think I might keep him, too.
Me: Oh?
Girl (with some regret, but not much): Yeah, because I think Jordan might take Jackson.
Me: So you'll keep Jasper just in case?
Girl: Yeah.
Me: Sounds sensible.

Ha! Always keep a spare... Big Love indeed!

Sensible indeed ;). I do wonder what the boys' take on it is, though! (Probably equally amusing.)

The girl's learned early that it's a good idea to have a back-up plan. Hahaha! I love it.

This is all especially apropos now that we're reading "Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren" in which there is a love quadrangle.

She is very wise. It is always good to have a backup boyfriend. My sister has always operated by this method.
