The day my husband asked me to marry him was one of the most memorable days in my life. There was no flash mob, lip dub performance or a crowded stadium of onlookers. Instead it was him, my (our) daughter, and me. We were sitting at my favorite breakfast place, my daughter and I seated side by side at our booth. I’ll never forget looking at her face when a tiny box containing a sparkly ring appeared. Both our faces lit up. “We” were going to marry daddy.
Despite the trend of elaborate proposals I honestly wouldn’t have had it any other way. I got to share a special moment with both of the people who meant the world to me. I loved that my daughter was there beside me and a part of the memory as opposed to her being one of the many people I told the story to.
Although proposals are productions more often than not these days, I love hearing sweet stories where the children got to be a part of things. Most recently was the story of a father who had his newborn wear a onesie that asked if mommy would marry her daddy.
With some couples having children before tying the knot and single parents getting hitched we live in a world where it’s very possible that the baby carriage will come before marriage. Below are 11 fun ways to involve children in a proposal.
