Well, I guess it’s settled then.

Me: "Who did you play with today, Erik?"

- "Divon... and Riley, when I grow up, you know daddy, when I grow up I'm gonna marry Riley!"


- "Yeah! Cause we're the same color!"


- "Yeah, we're both light!  And you're light and mommy's light and I'm light and Lottie's light, so.."

"You know you don't have to marry someone who has the same skin color as you, Erik - you can marry anybody you like!"

- "You can?  ... I'm gonna marry Riley.  And when I grow up, I'm gonna be a dogtornarian!"

"Really - a dogtornarian?"

- "Yeah, a dogtornarian is a doctor for dogs.  And he gives the dogs shots, and the dogs are really good, and they get a flu shot so they don't get sick!  And when Riley grows up, she's gonna be a vegternarian, but she's only going to treat cats, and we're gonna treat both dogs AND cats!  And we're gonna have a little baby, and  the baby is going to to a school, and we're going to go to work!  Just like Lottie and me go to school, and you and mommy go to work!"


- "Daddy, we're having a great conbersation, do you like it?"

"Yes, Erik, I do.  A lot."
