{Percakapan} marriage

On one afternoon my Rumaysa 5 years old was curious about the topic of marriage (God knows why!)

Rumaysa:” mama, why do you marry baba?”

While preparing dinner I answered casually:”because he’s a good man, very responsible and most importantly he is a good Muslim ماشاء الله “

And I forgot to mention the important part that he’s not my relative 😃

Rumaysa:”oh.... so can I marry Hudayfah when I grow up?”

Me:”no you can’t, because he’s your brother”

R:”so who can I marry then?”

Me:”anyone else that is not blood related to you, someone you might never meet before, a stranger”

R:”a strangeeeeeeer??!!” (I wrote that way because she was really shocked lol)
But mama you told us not to even talk to a stranger how can I marry a stranger then???

*facepalm*

LESSON:

1. It’s so obvious I wasn’t prepared with the answer of such question! but it’s okay because parenting is also a learning process for everyone.

2. Choose the right words and expression to explain a “grown up” subjects (of course I didn’t in this instance lol)

3. Simplify the abstract concepts in explaining to 5 yo without changing the substance (mind you, I can only tell you the theory, in practice??? Lord help me!!)

4. Give a portion that s/he can chew so it won’t create more confusion and most importantly create more questions 🙈

Good luck to all mothers out there

These kids are growing way too fast
