Sometimes I let Sean watch The Mickey Mouse Club House to occupy him while I’m getting dressed or trying to get something done.
Yesterday morning, while I was getting dressed for church, he turned and asked me if Mickey and Minnie were married.
No, I told him, I thought they were just dating. Then I started thinking about it. They’ve been dating since 1928. Someone needs to step up and be Minnie’s friend and tell it to her straight.

Dear Minnie –
I know that you love him. He’s cute and he’s funny. All the girls love him Minnie. He looks really cute in those little pants. But let’s face it Min, it’s been 81 years! Have you even met his parents? No. Do you have a ring? No. You haven’t even been to his apartment – only his club house!
Mick’s got commitment issues sister. He’s just not that into you. It’s time to move on. And while we’re at it, I’m sending Stacy and Clinton over to talk to you about those shoes and that dress.
