4) From the Mouths of Babes

I met Harold July 12th 1997 while driving one
night with a girlfriend of mine. Although Harold was so very rough
around the edges like a freshly mined diamond, I definitely could
see he was IF well maybe not IF but at least VVS1 quality to me.
The next couple of years were spent in lovers heaven. In 1999 we
found out that we would be blessed with a beautiful little girl,
we named Jazzemin. At this time I felt that marriage should have
been right around the corner, but that’s not how Harold felt.

Well one day Harry was making his normal "sports authority
comments"; in his so called sports dome as Jazzy & I watched
a wedding program in the bedroom. Not realizing what impression
this show would have had on our 3-year-old daughter, Jazzy went
to Harold and just out of the blue said, "Daddy you get married?"
Harold was quite surprised and was sure that I had put her up to
this. So he replied, "what?" she then said, "you
know married, boy, girl, kiss" and puckered her two lips out
while humming "mmmm"; from this he did not reply.

A month had gone by without a single world of marriage. Then one
night while washing Jazzy in the tub like we always did, Harold
whispered something into Jazzy’s ear. Jazzy then said, "Mommy
you love Daddy?" I looked at him said yes. I then whispered
in Jazzy’s ear. She then said, "Daddy you love Mommy? He said
yes. Then he whispered into her ear again. Jazzy then said, "
Mommy you marry Daddy" I started crying and said, "YES".

We plan to be married in July of 2004.
