In my head I'm saying "When did the words change?", "Am I getting old?", "that's not the way we did it when I was a kid", "what's going on?!". (I sound like I'm 80 years old talking about how I had to walk to school each day in 3 feet of snow, uphill BOTH ways. heh. Although, I did walk to school back in the day, and sometimes there was a lot of snow, and sometimes I had to wear my moon boots - hated those things. But it was only uphill one way. heh. But I really digress....)
It's a song.
A song that Sam, my 6 year old was singing to me last night at dinner.
You know it, I bet you think you can sing along like I did...
"Mom and Dad sitting in a tree.
First comes college, then comes marriage...."
Wait a minute! Wait one stinkin' minute.
When did that song change?
First comes college?
What happened to first comes love?
Don't get me wrong. I'm tickled that it changed to "college". We've always taught our kids that college is a very important part of life, part of growing up. I loved my college years. And I personally think that it is SO important that people have a chance to get away from home and live their lives BEFORE they get married.
So I don't object to the change in the song.
But when did it change?
And HOW does my 6 year old know that song?
And what about love before marriage?
ok, so it's a slooooow blog day.... ;)
