So we’ve just come back from a lovely family wedding – and who doesn’t love a good wedding? There’s so many things to love about a wedding…the tears shed during the exchanging of vows, the endless amounts of fizz, the hours spent filling our faces and of course the cheesy speeches. But apparently, a four year old sees things very differently. I didn’t know whether to burst out laughing or hide in shame at some of the exclamations our resident four year old made at the wedding at 70 flipping decibels…but I’ve decided on balance they were definitely worth a laugh and so here they are for your entertainment!
On the ceremony
Ah just look at the happy couple..they’ve exchanged vows, and rings and now they’re sealing the deal with the kiss. But to a four year old their only concern at this moment apparently voiced to the whole of the flipping room in their booming four year old voice is “when will it end?”. Okay, in fairness we have probably all thought the same at some point during a wedding ceremony but you know, we know how to keep these thoughts to ourselves being the mature adults we are. You can’t beat their honesty can you?!
On the food
Blurgh! Canapes, three course meal, fancy bread with seeds? What is this folly? They’ll be more than happy eating a bajillion crackers with peanut butter and Pom Bears…(if you remembered to bring a stash that is). Hey ho, tomorrow is a new day.
On the speeches
Hours and hours with furrowed brow spent crafting the speeches by the father of the bride, best man and groom only to be met with in a four year old’s mind with “what is he SAYING????!” and loud sarcastic four year old comedy “HA HA HA”” laughs and eye rolling at inopportune moments. Time to get our coats?
On the best bit of the wedding
The memories of weddings stay with us for years – the beautiful moments, the emotions, the words, that image of the bride and groom forever imprinted in our minds. But to a four year old when asked about the best bit of a wedding.
Ahhh but bless their beautiful innocent and say-it-like-you-see it four year old minds. We wouldn’t have it any other way would we….or would we?
