Kids Say The Darnedest Things

Monster is almost 11.  We've been on our own since she was 3 yrs old. 

Yesterday, she says "Ya know what?  I think it's time I had a stepdad."

Me:  O.o....

Her: "It's not a bad thing.  Grampa is your stepdad and he's like your real dad.  I want that kind of good thing with a stepdad.  My dad isn't even around, so it's just like with you and uncle.  Your real dad was gone and grampa took over.  He loves you, loves me and it's like how a real family should be."

I told my Dad (stepdad) what she said and he started crying.  Neither one of them are sentimental in any way and often give each other a hard time and flip each other shit constantly.  It's their way of showing affection, I guess.  So I was a bit surprised when she said what she said.

Awwww she's sweet and so very wise for her age. Better hurry up and find her a step-dad. ;)
