  • It's a phase that pretty much all children go through. I would go into the specifics (Freud all that other psycho babble), but I have a headache lol. I would tell him that you think it's wonderful that he loves you so much, but there's a special girl waiting for him that he hasn't met yet, so you couldn't possibly take him away from her.

  • Just tell him he doesn't need to marry you, because you're always gonna be there anyway!

  • My son has asked me that to and I let him down gently. I told him we could never be married because I am his family but I'd always love him and be there for him no matter what:) He's a sweetie.

  • ive read stories of people actually doing marriage ceremonies with their kids.. its all for fun. he will grow up & not want to marry you. so i dont see a reason in "letting him down"..
    why dont u bake a cute cake one day. let him profess his love for his mommy & you tell him how much u love him. seal it with a mommy kiss... fake ring is great or you could use a ring u have for the special memory & it would make for GREAT jokes when he gets his first girlfriend.. or wife..
    i dont think ur going to screw him up at all... lol...
