  • Relax, it's just a phase she is going through.

  • I think it's a pretty normal phase. It's part of playing house. Give it time, she'll find something else to occupy her time. Just think, it could be worse! lol :p

  • Kids are fickle, this will pass eventually, you just have to ride it out.

  • I agree with other mom's: it's just a phase. I remember doing the same when I was a kid. I even remember "getting married" in the school yard once.

    If she starts trying to act out the wedding night, that's when you should get concerned.

  • The more you stress it the more important it will become. It will pass if you let it.

  • Sounds normal to me. My five-year-old set up a "table for two" the other night when we were having frozen pizza together and asked me to marry her. It was pretty cute; I wondered where in the world she got it from.

  • Are you worried she's going to elope sometime soon lol? It's just a phase. Let her play.
