Little kids are the cutest thing ever and "say the darnedest things." Haha.
I wanted to share with you a couple of cute stories relating to my flower girl and ring bearer. Honestly, I never thought kids would even care about doing one of these roles, but boy was I wrong.
So my flower girl is my oldest niece and she is 3 years old (will be a 1/2 a month shy from 4 at my wedding). When I asked her, she was so happy. My SIL let me know a few weeks later that she woke up crying one night. I'm not certain what she thought, but she was crying because she wanted to be in my wedding. I can't remember if it was because she thought it already happened or that she thought I went with someone else or what. Either way, I felt so touched, but also a little sad that she cried about it. Poor thing, haha. My mom has also told me a few times, that she asks when they get in the car if they are coming to my wedding. She cares so much about being in my wedding. We went to pick out her dress last weekend and she was so excited to try on dresses and loves the one we picked! I get to pick it up tomorrow and so excited to have her try it on again to make sure the size we ordered fits! She's so excited to get her hair done too. (:
My ring bearer was supposed to be my nephew and he will turn 6. I asked him a few times over a span of a few months and he said no each time. I'm not hurt by this or anything, I just wanted to make sure he was sure he didn't want to be in it before I asked another person. Poor thing told my mom he was scared to be embarrassed by whatever might happen while walking down the aisle. Anyway, so I have a bridesmaid that has 3 kids and I asked her oldest son who just turned 5! He doesn't seem excited about it around me, but apparently he does around his parents and siblings. He also keeps asking when it's time for the weddings (this friend is getting married two months after me!). She told me he likes to brag to his siblings about being in my wedding. I feel a little bad about that part, but kids are funny and she assured me that they don't care.
Kids will just surprise you everyday. Something I never thought they would be excited about and here they are, bragging, asking, and talking about it quite often.
