Tonight as I was tucking the boys in and praying for them, I prayed that God would bring them Godly wives. Afterwards Jack asked, “What’s a wife?” So I explained that a wife was a woman that was married to a man, her husband, and gave myself as an example. “Oh. I want Mommy to be my wife.” (Insert a melted-heart Mommy.)
“Well, God has already given me to be Daddy’s wife, but I can always be your Mommy.”
“Okay. Well then Daniel can be my wife.”
“No. A wife is a lady.”
“Huh. Well then YOU WILL be my wife!”
“We’ll talk about it in ten more years and see what you think then.”
Jack is obviously a little confused about all of the family roles, but I’ll keep praying for the little girls that will one day be my daughters-in-law. In the meantime, I’ll also focus on trying to be the kind of wife to their daddy that I’d want for them to have one day.
