Anyway, sweet Xander did so well at the wedding. He, Amelia Jayne and I were sitting together. David had to sit across the aisle, due to unforeseen circumstances, so he wasn't with us. About 6 or 7 minutes in, Amelia Jayne started talking really loudly so I knew I had to take her out. But Xander would be alone. I was in a dilemma. But then Amelia Jayne started talking even MORE loudly. So I hopped up and stepped outside with her. And left Xander alone. Can I tell you what a trooper he was? He sat so still and listened and watched through the whole thing. He tells me about it now and I know it didn't bother him one bit to be left alone. My boy's growing up.
The most memorable marriage conversation we've had yet happened last night.
Xander: Ms. Della Anne got married. And guess who else was there? Mr. Spanky!
Me: Yes, he married Ms. Della Anne and Mr. Caleb.
Me: Yes, baby. One day you'll get married.
Xander: And will I marry a special girl?
Me: (getting teary eyed) Yes, because you're a very special boy.
Xander: Mommy, will you be there when I get married?
Me: (tears streaming down my face while David laughs at me from across the dinner table) Of course I'll be there. I wouldn't miss it, baby.
This is one of those special moments I'll remember forever.
